The City of St. Louis is looking at making curbside recycling an option, but it's difficult in our current fiscal situation. It would be more expensive both in terms of start-up costs (it would require new and different equipment than what the City currently uses) and operating costs. However, the City is not ruling out curbside recycling altogether -- we understand that many residents would be very interested in curbside recycling, so the City and the Refuse Department are doing everything they can to see how they can make it a possibility.
