Trash, Recycling & Yard Waste

As of April 2019, the City of Crestwood contracts with Waste Connections for solid waste, recycling, and yard waste disposal, at one low price. This allows all residents an opportunity to conveniently dispose of their wastes. The City examined all options and determined a billing system has the lowest overall cost and convenience for residents. Each resident must establish solid waste service with Waste Connections. Please contact Waste Connections at 636-321-2100 to establish a solid waste collection.

Pickup Schedule

All containers should be placed at the curb after 4:30 p.m. the evening before scheduled pickup and no later than 7:00 a.m. on your collection day. All items will be picked up by 6:00 p.m. except under unusual circumstances. Trash containers must be removed from the curb by 8:00 p.m. the day of the scheduled pickup.

All items (household rubbish, yard waste and recyclables) are collected on the same day, but not at the same time. There will be three different trucks to collect your waste materials. The pickup scheduled is determined by designated area routes as follows: See map to determine your area.

  • Area 1:  Monday
  • Area 2:  Tuesday
  • Area 3:  Thursday
  • Area 4:  Friday

If you are unsure of your area, please contact the Department of Public Works at 314-729-4720.

Handicap/Valet Trash Service

For residents that need assistance with getting their trash to the curb, Waste Connections does provide a Handicap/Valet Trash pickup. View the Handicap/Valet Trash Service Form (PDF) form and then return the form to the City of Crestwood City Clerk’s Office, with a signed note from your doctor stating the disability for verification. The City will then pass the information along to waste connections, who will provide the service.

Holiday Schedule

Waste Connections observes six holidays per year:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Day

On a week when there is an observed holiday, each pick-up day will be serviced just one day later. For example, as Memorial Day always takes place on a Monday, during that week, Monday pick-up will be provided on Tuesday, Tuesday pickup will be on Wednesday, and so on.
