Attempting to Live a Sustainable Lifestyle in St. Louis

Environmentally friendly decisions are tough

Sorry for doubting you, City of St. Louis Refuse Division August 16, 2007

 If you only read this first sentence, then read “The St Louis Refuse Division was responsive”. 

I posted a bit of frustration the other day when I realized that my new (and temporary) loft didn’t do any recycling.  I mean, all these people stuffed down here on Washington Ave. and no recycling center.

So, I emailed one night and completely assumed that no one would ever contact me. I was wrong. The next morning I had an email from Elizabeth McAdam, a Recycling Specialist for the city. She informed me that though the there wasn’t one listed on the web-site (due to their IT staff, apparently), a recycling center does exist at 14th and Delmar.

I’m happy to be separating my recyclables once again.

On a separate note, you should take the city’s recycling survey if you haven’t done so.  It’s a small bit of work and makes you think, but since they probably make decisions off this type of research, thought I’d fill it out.
