It's Now Easier to Drop Off Unwanted Items at City Dump Sites
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 4, 2018 - Rresidents can now drop off unwanted items 12 times per year, without monthly restrictions.

City residents now have increased opportunities to drop off trash and other unwanted items at the City's two transfer stations, Mayor Lyda Krewson recently announced.

The city's transfer stations, also known as the two City dumps, at 201 North Humboldt Avenue and 4100 South First Street, are now operating seven days a week, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Additionally, residents can now drop off trash, yard waste, recycling, bulk items, car batteries, motor oil, appliances and car tires up to 12 times per year, regardless of the month, under a new policy Krewson initiated. Under the old policy, residents were restricted to dropping off unwanted items to once per month.

"The old rule limited drop off to once a month, which made it difficult for people cleaning out their garages or their basements who need to make more than one trip in the same month," Krewson said. "I'm in favor of anything we can do to make things a little easier on people."

Important tips:
If you're a homeowner, bring your driver's license or state ID, and a recent combined Water/Solid Waste Fee statement.

If you're a renter, bring your driver's license or state ID, and a recent utility bill showing you live in the City.

Soldiers Memorial Reopens to the Public Following a Two-year $30 million Renovation
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), November 4, 2018 - Following a two-year, $30 million renovation, Soldiers Memorial Military Museum reopened to the public on Nov. 3, 2018, as a state-of-the-art museum facility that honors military service members, veterans and their families under the operational leadership of the Missouri Historical Society.

Completed in 1938 as a monument to St. Louisans who lost their lives in World War I, Soldiers Memorial reopens in the heart of downtown ahead of Veterans Day 2018, which marks the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended the conflict.

To commemorate this important centennial and to celebrate the grand reopening of Soldiers Memorial Military Museum the public is invited to participate in a series of reopening week events. A variety of activities and programs will be available starting with the grand reopening ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, through Monday, Nov. 12, 2018.

The new exhibits, St. Louis in Service and WWI: St. Louis and the Great War will be open daily at Soldiers Memorial from 10 am to 5 pm. Flag raising and lowering ceremonies will take place daily at Soldiers Memorial from Nov. 3 through Nov. 12.


Rendering of Ferguson Teen Center Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis Begin Work on New Teen Center in Ferguson
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis have begun work on a $12.4 M Teen Center of Excellence at 9200 West Florissant Avenue in Ferguson, Missouri.

The center will offer afterschool and summer programs to teens and youth (ages 12-18) in the North County area. The Teen Center of Excellence, one of the first in the country, is being built on the site of the former Ferguson Ponderosa, will be 26,856 square feet, have three levels and include a nutrition education center, outdoor garden, gym, intellectual commons, teen lounge, auditorium, outdoor basketball and activity court, music and art studio, office space and maker space.

Ferguson and North County area teens currently have limited options for out-of-school time activities. They need a place to go for safe, structured, and supervised programs that can help them learn and grow as well as additional resources and support to help them academically, socially and emotionally. Their hopes and aspirations must be a top priority.

Opening a Teen Center in the Ferguson area will produce positive outcomes in a community that has been challenged with difficult realities and negative images. Adding a successful youth focused organization into Ferguson like Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis, which has a long track record of success, can bolster young people's attitudes and help them navigate a path to success.

A new Teen Center will enrich our children's lives and the surrounding communities by helping its youth build strong character, graduate from high school with a plan for life, and become productive citizens. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater St. Louis has a 50 year track record of success in the St. Louis region as a youth services provider and will implement nationally recognized programs at the new center similar to those offered in the ten locations it presently operates.
