  • All new Solid Waste Customers are getting a “starter packet” of bags (6 trash and 2 recycling).  If they sign up in person, then Utility Customer Service (UCS) provides them the bags at that time, if they sign up online, then UCS mails the starter packet to the customer.
  • In instances where the utility account is in the property owner’s name, vouchers are sent to the service address regardless of who is paying for the utilities. 

Emergency Rental Assistance Arrears Program  (ERAP) is administered by the Missouri Housing Development Commission to provide assistance to landlords who have renters with past-due rent due to impacts from COVID-19.
