Starting in February, every other month the City of O’Fallon’s Environmental Services Department will host two events for the disposal of unwanted items. February’s events and dates are:
Free Electronics & Appliance Recycling Event – Drop off unwanted appliances and electronics for recycling in the west parking lot at CarShield Field from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, February 4.

Basically anything that has an electric cord or takes a battery can be dropped off.

The fees for CRT drop-offs are:
- CRT Monitors, $5
- CRT TVs 26” or less, $20
- CRT TVs 27” or greater, $40
- Wood Console and True Big Screen/Projection TVs, $50
Bulk Waste Drop-off – Open and free to City residents enrolled in O’Fallon’s trash collection service, items that are too large to fit into the City’s curbside trash containers can be brought to the O’Fallon waste transfer station, free, from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 11. To use the drop-off, customers need a current photo ID with their O’Fallon address and must unload their own items.
