Des Peres has been an advocate of recycling as a means to both improve the environment and extend the life of area landfills since creation of a Citzens Solid Waste Task Force in 1990. 2013 represents the 23nd year that Des Peres has offered free curbside recycling as a part of our solid waste management.
