Are you an O’Fallon, Missouri, resident with items that are too large to fit into your curbside trash container? If so, you may be able to take advantage of the City’s free quarterly drop-off service for bulky items, which can be brought to O’Fallon’s waste transfer station from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 17. The transfer station is located at 1572 Progress West Lane, O’Fallon 63366.

Acceptable items for bulky item drop-off include: furniture, carpets, swing sets, bikes, toddler pools, sports and exercise equipment, large hand tools, barbecue grills, fluorescent tubes, computer monitors and televisions.

Unacceptable items include yard waste, appliances, tires, auto parts, batteries, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and liquid household hazardous waste: paint, solvents, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and their containers.

To take part in the drop-off, O’Fallon residents must be current on their trash bill, and display a current photo ID with their O’Fallon address. Residents also must unload their own items. Drop-offs are limited to one load per household. Only cars, pickup trucks, and small trailers (10 feet or smaller) will be allowed to bring items to the drop off.

Residents also can arrange to have many large items picked up at the curb year round. To schedule a pick up, email staff at ofallonrecycles@ofallon.mo.us or call Environmental Services at 636-272-0477. Cost of the service is $20 per truck hopper for curbside collection.
