Residential Recycling

Single-Stream Recycling

The City of Webster Groves participates in Single-Stream Recycling. 64-gallon carts are provided to each single and two-family household for recycling collection.  A recycling information guide is printed on the cart lid to provide a listing of accepted materials for Single Stream Recycling.

Residents will continue to use the City-owned recycling cart (green with black lid). If additional recycling carts are needed, please call Waste Management at 800-964-8988. There is no additional charge for recycling carts. 

  • Commingle all acceptable recyclables in this cart (no sorting necessary).
  • Rinse food residue from containers.
  • Do not pre-bag the recyclables.
  • No trash, yard waste or hazardous materials will be collected from the recycling cart. Recyclables contaminated with these materials can not be collected.
  • Place the cart at the curb for collection. Your recycling collection day remains the same.
  • The cart remains the property of the City of Webster Groves. Each has a stamped identification number that helps track its location in the event it is lost or stolen.
