The city of O’Fallon has extended its agreement with St. Peters for the processing of recycled materials.
Resolution No. 11-14-2019A extends the current recycling agreement between the city of O’Fallon and the city of St. Peters for an additional three years. During 2019, O’Fallon worked with St. Peters in order to offer O’Fallon residents an economically feasible and sustainable method to recycle products in spite of no longer offering single-stream recycling pickup. This included the utilization of St. Peters’ Recycle City, a central material processing facility for recycling activities in St. Charles County.
Uncontaminated container products, including glass and plastic, are collected via curbside pickup from O’Fallon residents. Paper and cardboard were switched to resident drop-off locations instead of curbside pickup.
The resolution was passed at the regular O’Fallon City Council on Nov. 14 by a vote of 10-0 authorizing the city administrator to extend the agreement with St. Peters.
The extended agreement will be effective Jan. 1, 2020 with a three-year term and an option to renew for one more year unless either party gives 180 days advance notice to end the agreement.
There is no cost to O’Fallon for taking these recyclable materials to the St. Peters facility. The only charges will be for contaminated materials that must be pulled out of the delivered product. Those charges will be $15.21 per bale with a 2.5% inflationary cost adjustment added for each year of the contract.
