The Environmental Services Department consists of the Sanitation, Recycling, and Vehicle Maintenance divisions. The Sanitation Division is responsible for all regular municipal trash pick-up service, for both residential and commercial customers.
Sanitation also offers rental of construction dumpsters for contractors or large do-it-yourself jobs, and special pickups of appliances and other large or unusual items.
The Recycling Division offers both a drop-off site as well as residential curbside collection of recyclable materials. Drop off service at the Recycling Center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Recycling Center accepts various types of plastics, glass, paper, cardboard, aluminum and tin cans. Processing of these materials takes place on site, and the material is then sold on the open market. Approximately 3,000 tons of waste per year is kept out of landfills and returned to usable consumer forms through the efforts of the Recycling Division.
In addition to these two large divisions, the Environmental Services Department is also responsible for the operation of the City's central Vehicle Maintenance shop, which services City vehicles from all City departments.
Municipal waste collected by the department is hauled to the Phelps County Transfer Station, located at 12441 County Road 2170, Rolla.
For more information on the Transfer Station such as hours of operation, items not accepted, etc. please call 573-364-8771.
As of January 1, 2017, trash containers must be pulled away from the curb and returned to the house within 24 hours after normally scheduled collection day. Rollouts left at the curb will be subject to a stiff fine.
