The county was a leader in special event recycling, starting the program in 1999 at the St. Louis County Fair and Air Show. Each year more and more venues provide recycling and zero waste events (where organics are also collected). Many haulers and recyclers now offer special event recycling services.
The Solid Waste Management Program can provide technical assistance and a container loan program for small events. You can arrange to borrow clear stream recycling containers for your event by downloading this Clear Stream Recycling Container Form. Below is a brief special event recycling planning guide or download a detailed Recycling Plan for Special Events PDF.
