Overview


University City is one of only a few municipalities in the St. Louis metropolitan area to own and operate its own transfer station and solid waste collection vehicles. The Solid Waste Management Division is responsible for the collection and proper disposal of solid waste (trash, recycling, yard waste) from all homes, city owned buildings, and numerous businesses within the city.
