Change is upon us!

We will be closed from

December 15th - January 31st

for the holidays in December and a new contractor starting the first of the new year!

If you have questions or concerns, please contact us


The short answer is no, however, making an appointment assures we have the appropriate staff ready to help you! The reservation process also explains what is accepted and helps you estimate any fees that may apply.  While appointments are highly encouraged, life happens and you may want to come earlier than expected or on a day that works better for your schedule. We want this to be an accessible resource for our community, so we welcome walk in’s and fluctuating your appointment time! 


To better accommodate you and our staff, please be aware of our new hours for each site on each day we are open:

WEDNESDAY (North Facility), THURSDAY (Lemay Facility), FRIDAY, (Lemay Facility) SATURDAY (alternates between the two sites)


OPEN: 9:00 AM – 11:45 AM

CLOSED: 11:45 AM- 12:45 PM

OPEN: 12:45 PM- 6:00 PM


North Facility Saturday's           Lemay Facility Saturday's

September 8 & 22                      September 15 & 29

October 6 & 20                           October 13 & 27

November 3 & 17                       November 10

December 1 & 15                       December 8


In order to assure two people are on site to manage the materials safely, closing the facilities between 11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. will be strictly observed.  We want to keep harmful materials locked up securely to minimize the risks of them being unattended, so please plan your trip accordingly.  


Thank you for properly managing your household hazardous waste!


If you have any questions or concerns about these new hours, you can find our contact information under the “contact us” tab in the top right corner of this page.


Did the previous owner of your house leave paint thinner and pool chemicals?  Are you helping a parent move to a condominium and you have jars of hobby paint purchased in the Reagan administration?  Whatever the reason, many of us have hazardous products that are too old to use.  They just need disposal.  So- how does St. Louis Household Hazardous Waste (HHWSTL) work? 

Happy New Year!

With all the new changes a new year brings, we also are going through some changes. Latex paint disposal will go from 0.20 cents per pound, to 0.25 cents per pound for disposal.

While this decision was hard, we want you to know it is only temporary! Your latex paint needs to be sent farther away for disposal right now, and because of the increase in transporting it farther away, prices had to go up to cover the cost of proper disposal. Once we can send the latex paint back to our original local source, the price will reflect that.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, and thanks for recycling!
