Cleaning house for the holidays?
City of O’Fallon trash service customers are invited to take advantage of the city’s free, bi-monthly drop-off for many items that are too large to fit into curbside trash containers. The drop-off will be held 7 a.m.–3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 13 at O’Fallon’s waste transfer station, 1572 Progress West Lane.
The free drop-off is limited to O’Fallon trash customers as part of their enrollment. Customers must show a current photo ID with their O’Fallon address and unload their own items.
A complete list of non-acceptable and acceptable bulk waste items for the drop-off is available at www.ofallon.mo.us/bulk-waste or by calling 272-0477. Only one load per household will be accepted and only cars, pickup trucks and small trailers 10 feet or less will be allowed.
Acceptable bulk waste for drop-off include furniture, carpets, swing sets, bikes, toddler pools, sports and exercise equipment, large hand tools, barbecue grills, fluorescent tubes, computer monitors and televisions. Lawn mowers, except riding mowers, also are accepted, but gas and oil tanks must be empty.
Unacceptable items include yard waste, appliances, tires, auto parts, batteries, gas, oil, transmission fluid and liquid household hazardous waste such as paint, solvents, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and their containers. To dispose of unacceptable items, please contact St. Charles County Recycle Works at 949-7415.
For city trash customers, curbside collection for many large items is available by calling Environmental Services at 272-0477, or contacting staff by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cost of the service is $20 per truck hopper.
