How to Handle Illegal Dumping
Ways to handle illegal dumping in the city of St Louis
It is illegal for businesses and commercial trucks to use the City's residential Dumpsters. Businesses are required by law to provide their own container from a commercial waste hauler.
Violators should be reported to the Citizen's Service Bureau: call (314) 622-4800, or you may submit a report online.
If you see a commercial truck that is dumping illegally, please get the license plate number, description of the vehicle, and call 911. The trash task force will investigate and prosecute instances of illegal dumping. If the information you provide results in the conviction of the suspect, you may be eligible for a $100 reward.
