ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) — St. Louis City residents are being asked to drop off their recyclables at drop-off locations as the city faces a worker shortage.

“The Refuse Division is taking every action to make sure residents have their trash picked up in a timely manner,” said City Refuse Commissioner Todd Waelterman. “As we continue to search for applicants to fill vacant positions, the Division asks residents to drop off recycling at nearly 30 locations across the City until this long-standing shortage is resolved to ensure their recycling is collected and processed.”
The city is looking to fill the openings in the refuse division. The positions are union jobs with competitive pay and benefits, the city says. The department is offering $1,500 signing bonuses for new hires and a $500 referral bonus to existing employees who help find new employees.
