UPDATE: Third, Fourth Flood Debris Pickup Cycles Begin Aug. 26, Conclude After Labor Day

August 22, 2019

St. Charles County, Missouri – St. Charles County Government will complete the second cycle of flood debris pick up from homes in unincorporated St. Charles County and West Alton at 5 p.m., Friday, Aug. 23. Due to increased demand, a third pick up cycle in these areas will begin at 7 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 26. For the fourth and final pick up cycle, residents are asked to have debris curbside by Sunday, Sept. 1, in preparation for the vendor to pick up after Labor Day. If you haven’t done so, please follow the instructions below and get debris out immediately:

  1. Separate household debris, major appliances (water heaters, furnaces, condensers and other household appliances) and vegetation into three different pickup piles.
  2. Household hazardous waste (chemicals, paint, motor oil, cleaning supplies, pesticides, etc.) will not be picked up. These products need to be taken to the St. Charles County Recycle Works locations or another recycling center that takes hazardous waste. More information about Household Hazardous Waste.
  3. All debris, appliances and vegetation must be placed curbside on the public right-of-way. Collectors will not pick up debris from private property. Items must be properly sorted and placed before removal; please do not block public streets.
  4. Any debris not curbside on the public right-of-way by the pickup date will be the owner’s responsibility to remove.

Residents who have further questions should call St. Charles County Regional Emergency Management at 636-949-3023.
