Yard Waste Disposal Guidelines
As a part of Ballwin's contract with Republic Services, yard waste, such as grass clippings, leaves, bush and limbs (bundled in maximum 4' lengths), will be picked up. Due to Missouri law, yard waste may not be put into landfills. It must be composted. This requires that all yard waste be separated from trash and garbage, placed in a container dedicated to these materials, or in biodegradable paper bags. Yard waste collection day will vary depending on your location. To find out the day of the week your yard waste will be picked up view this MAP, call Republic Services at 636 947-5959 or ask a neighbor.
