Save a Tree

St. Peters offers an opportunity to securely destroy unneeded documents during this event. A large mobile shredder will be at the Health and Environmental Operations Building, 135 Ecology Drive in St. Peters.

Simply place the documents you want to destroy in cardboard boxes and bring them to the Health and Environmental Operations Building. Please make sure that the banker-size boxes are not too heavy to lift. There is a limit of five banker-size boxes per vehicle. All of the shredded material will be recycled including the cardboard boxes if they are not needed back.

Do not bring computer discs or hanging file rods. If you can tear it, then you can shred it using this service. The documents may contain staples or paper clips.

This service is FREE for St. Peters and Cottleville resident households only. A Resident Privilege Card is required. Resident Privilege Cards can be obtained at City Hall, the Rec-Plex and Recycle City.

There will be a fee of $5 per box, cash only, for people who do not live in St. Peters or Cottleville. The five-box limit applies.

Plant a Tree

While you are dropping off your paper for shredding, why not pick up a tree seedling to plant? The St. Peters Parks, Recreation and Arts Advisory Board will once again be participating in this annual Arbor Day activity. The seedlings will be available while they last.

The trees will be available for St. Peters residents with a Resident Privilege Card from 9-10 a.m. After 10 a.m., the trees will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
