Trash Collection

The City of Ellisville provides a weekly curbside trash pick up service at no direct cost to single family residences. Republic Services Inc. is the city's solid waste collection services contractor who will provide trash, recycling, and yard waste pick-up services.

Trash, recycling, and yard waste are collected on Wednesdays throughout the city. Trash containers should be placed side by side with lids facing toward the street, so that the truck can pick them up with the hydraulic lift.

Waste should be placed at the curb by 6:30 a.m. contained in 1 of the following:

  • 90 gallon cart rented from Republic Services
  • Plastic trash bags
  • Trash can with handles provided by residents

Weight Restrictions

  • No bag or can should weigh more than 50 pounds.
  • Bags placed at the curb should not weigh more than the manufacturer's rated capacity.

Unacceptable Materials

Materials that are unaccepted for trash collection include:

  • Appliances
  • Batteries
  • Car parts
  • Compost

Bulk Collection Procedure

Bulky items are defined as household materials that are too large to fit in your regular waste collection container and that are not bundled into 4 feet or less bundles. Examples of bulky items include furniture, some household construction materials, old bicycles, and carpet (must be bundled 4 feet by 2 feet or less). Wood, drywall, etc. is limited to one 32 gallon can per pick up.

Although bulky item collection is part of the basic service and is picked up at no additional cost, residents are required to contact Republic Services at 636-947-5959 to schedule a collection day.
