How Best to Get Rid of Stuff”
Margaret Lilly and Sarah Staebell
St. Louis County Department of Public Health
Do you find yourself asking “What do I do with this?” when you’re ready to get rid of something? Here’s your chance to get all of your questions answered!
The Saint Louis County Department of Public Health has some exciting tools and programs that residents can tap into to manage their waste safely.
Learn about the new search tool Recycle Wizard, giving you details on how to dispose of something correctly and the Household Hazardous Waste Program (HHW).
Margaret Lilly has worked in the environmental education field over the last 30 years in organizations such as the National Park Service, St. Louis Zoo, St. Louis Science Center and the Missouri Botanical Garden. She is now the Supervisor of the Waste Diversion Program at the St. Louis County Department of Public Health. The Waste Diversion Program conducts community outreach, school presentations, and administers a municipal grant program. She is an advocate of taking practical actions to reduce waste and is excited to expand knowledge about the opportunities St. Louis County residents have to best get rid of “stuff”.
Sarah Staebell is an Environmental Specialist with the Saint Louis County Department of Public Health. In her 9 years with the county, she started as a health inspector checking the sanitation of restaurants and pools. She gradually moved around different positions until 2017, where she continues her current role of running the St. Louis Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) program. Sarah is a great resource for how to dispose of the scary things you might find in a basement, under the sink, or garage.
