Fall Tree-Limb Collection

Twice each year, the City’s Chipper Program provides residents a free, convenient way to dispose of small tree limbs. The fall tree-limb pickup will take place over a three-week period — by ward. If you are unsure about which ward you live in, please visit

The fall 2021 schedule is as follows:

Ward 1: Week of Oct. 4

Ward 2: Week of Oct. 11

Ward 3: Week of Oct. 18

Tree limbs must be less than eight inches in diameter and should not be bundled or placed in bags. The Chipper Program collection does not include leaves, root balls, shrubs or hedge trimmings, decorative grasses or grass. If you have questions, please call the Public Works Department at (636) 327-5101, and select option 1.

Solid Waste Collection Reminders

The City of Wentzville and its contracted hauler work hard to service all Wentzville residents in a timely and efficient manner. In order for collection crews to stay on schedule, Wentzville utility customers are asked to follow these guidelines when placing their solid waste out for collection.

Place carts at the curb no later than 6 a.m. on your collection day. Carts placed out after 6 a.m. may not be collected.

Place all solid-waste items inside your cart. Items left beside the cart could be missed or carried away by the wind. This creates debris and unwanted litter on our City’s streets. Any items that do not fit in your cart should be properly bagged and placed at the curb.

Do not place bulky items or excessive trash at the curb unless you have scheduled a special large pickup. Collection crews are on a tight schedule. Stopping to collect unbagged or bulky trash slows them down and can cause delays in the collection process.

Do not leave your carts at the curb for more than 48 hours. City municipal code allows for solid-waste carts to be stored outdoors on your residential property, but not at the curb.

If you would like to report a missed collection, schedule a one-time bulky pickup or make changes to your solid-waste collection service, please call (636) 327-5101 or visit
