Disposal Fees

Solid waste management in St. Louis County is funded by fees for the cost of disposal, and by the Solid Waste Service Fee assessed to properties.

Waste Disposal (Tipping) Fees

Fees for disposal of solid wastes are set by the St. Louis County Board.  Rates differ by the type of material.  Additional disposal charges* apply to garbage generated outside of the management area.
