Solid Waste & Recycling Information

The City contracts residential solid waste, recycling and yard waste collection through Wilson Waste Systems. This contract provides a high level of service for all households at lower rates. Collection costs are consolidated with the water and sewer service monthly bill.

All sanitation items (trash, recycling, and yard waste) will be picked up by zone.  See the collection schedule in the right-hand column to find collection days by subdivision or street.

The City offers weekly trash and recycling pickup and seasonal yard waste pick up.  All weekly items are collected on the same day in their own separate containers.  Items should be placed at the curb by 6:00 AM on your scheduled pick up day.

Special Needs Collection Services:
Our solid waste contractor, Wilson Waste, offers  Special Needs Service Collection when all adults at an address have special needs or disabilities that prevent them from setting their Trash Cart, Trash Bags, Recycling Carts, Recycling Bags, Yard Waste Carts and Yard Waste Bags at the curb for Collection.  If a request for Special Needs Service is approved by the City, Wilson Waste will pick up the trash at or near the garage door or front door of the home at no additional charge to the recipient.  Wilson Waste performs Special Needs Service Collection on the same Day that curbside Collection is provided on that street. For more information or to request Special Needs Service, please call 636-639-2049.

Yard-Waste Collection:
Yard-waste pickup for the City of Wentzville resumes the first full week in March and continues through the last week of December. Cancellations are accepted this year between January 1, 2014 and February 28, 2014. Residents who have not cancelled the service and were receiving yard-waste pickup when it ended December 31, 2013 will automatically receive the service again beginning March 1, 2014. Residents who receive yard-waste pickup should set yard-waste out on the same day they set out trash and recycling. Everything should be at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on the appropriate morning.

Residents can place their yard waste in brown recyclable bags or in a trash can.  Residents can rent a yard-waste cart for $3.00 a month, or they can use their own can.  If residents use their own can, it must be clearly marked "Yard-Waste" on both sides. Residents can obtain "Yard-Waste-Only" stickers at Wentzville's Public Works Building, located at 200 E. Fourth Street.

Yard-waste includes leaves, grass clippings, or limbs and branches. Limbs and branches should not be more than 4 feet long, 18 inches in diameter, or weigh more than 40 pounds. Also, bundles should be tied with a natural twine or other bio-degradable binding material.  Yard-waste DOES NOT include dirt, sod, rock, concrete, asphalt, lumber, tree stumps or logs over 18 inches in diameter.

If residents have questions about yard-waste pickup or fees, they can call the Public Works Department at (636) 639-2049.
