The city is contracting with Twehous Excavating to provide a drop-off location for vegetative debris at 2619 N. Shamrock Road.

The facility will operate 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday through the holiday weekend. After that, the facility will be open during those times Monday through Saturday.

The drop-off items must be vegetative debris like tree branches or brush. Staff will not accept building debris and household trash.

Republic Services will accept other waste and storm debris at its landfill, 5645 Moreau River Access Road (Gate 1).

Severe weather-related waste that will be disposed of at the landfill by third-party contractors will need to have an approved waste profile properly filed with Republic Services before disposal.

Waste residential owners and business owners dispose of directly will not require a waste profile, according to a Thursday city news release.

Residents needing waste profiles can call Republic Services at 573-635-8805.

Republic Services will place a three-day limit on Dumpster rentals, the news release notes.

Gov. Mike Parson's executive order temporarily removed the current ban on yard waste and appliance disposal at Missouri landfills, according to the news release.
