St. Peters residents and non-residents alike can recycle their live Christmas trees for free at St. Peters Earth Centre from Dec. 27, 2021, through Jan. 16, 2022.
Please keep in mind that for the tree to be recycled, all decorations, lights, plastic bags, and stands must be removed from the tree. Please do not wrap or tie the tree. Trees containing decorations, lights, plastic bags, tape, or wrapping will not be accepted.
After Jan. 16, 2022, there is a $5 charge to drop off a tree without a Resident Privilege Card.
The public can also take trees to the temporary designated drop-off center at Laurel Park in the upper parking lot through Jan. 16, 2022.
If residents would like to have their tree picked up at their home, they can cut it down and place it inside of their brown yard waste cart for pickup on their regular yard waste collection day through Jan. 31, 2022.
Reminder: Yard waste pickup will be suspended during the month of February and resumes the first full week of March. This winter break allows our staff to focus on vehicle maintenance while saving fuel during a period with little yard waste.
St. Peters Earth Centre is located at 115 Ecology Drive in St. Peters, off Mid Rivers Mall Drive just north of I-70.
