Help with recycling, spring cleaning offered in St. Charles, Wentzville


The average home stores nearly 100 pounds of hazardous materials, including cleaning supplies, paints, lawn care products and pesticides, according to St. Charles County officials. Improper disposal of these products – pouring down a drain, tossing in unacceptable trash receptacles, emptying into storm sewers or dumping on the ground – poses a community health risk.

St. Charles County residents may safely dispose of Household Hazardous Waste [HHW] through the county’s Recycle Works locations. 

Residents may bring unwanted items like chemicals, automobile fluids, pesticides and oil-based paints [latex paints are not accepted] to the following Recycle Works locations:

• Central, 60 Triad South in St. Charles

• West, 2110 East Pitman in Wentzville

Collection hours are from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays, and on the last Saturday of the month, with no appointment necessary. 

A $15 fee [cash or check only] is charged for loads of up to 50 pounds. For larger loads, the fee increases by $1 for each additional pound of material above the initial 50 pounds. 

For additional details, call (636) 949-1800 or visit sccmo.org/RecycleWorks.
