Here is some information on the significance of log cabins and the covered wagons that once traveled through Cottleville!

Log Cabins:

225 years ago from their lodging in St. Charles, Capt. Warren Cottle Sr. and his son Ira would ride out into the wilderness in search of a potential home-site. On this occasion they followed a Native American trace to a bluff overlooking the "Dardenne River". Impressed with the beauty of the countryside with large trees, game and birds, Capt. Cottle selected this site for his future home. Capt. Cottle received a land grant from the Spanish government for 640 arpents (541 acres). In 1799 Capt. Cottle led a party of 100 family members and friends on the 1,200 mile trip to what would one day become Cottleville, Missouri. In 1800 Capt. Cottle wrote a letter back to his brother-in-law in South Woodstock, VT, and soon another group arrived in Cottleville in 1802. These early settlers constructed several small log cabins as temporary homes, some of which remain today, many started farms or other businesses, while others received their own land grants and founded other towns.

Covered Wagons:

In 1805, Daniel Boone’s sons, Nathan and Daniel Morgan Boone, discovered a salt lick 100 miles west along the Native American trace in what would later become Howard County. The little Indian Trace would soon become the principal road for pioneers, hunters, and traders looking to settle the west. Thousands of wagons packed with their belongings and families tending to their livestock, stagecoaches with passengers and mail delivery riders would pass through Cottleville on the Boone’s Lick Road. Often, travelers became stranded at the point where the Boone's Lick Road crossed the Dardenne River in Cottleville, because of the frequent over-flowing of the stream and the muddy condition of the bottom lands through which the road passed. Many places of business came into existence including hotels, general stores, blacksmiths, and wagon repair shops. The Boone's Lick Road was the route followed by those who branched off to follow the Santa Fe Trail, Oregon and California Trails.

In the 1850's, a timber plank toll road was built from St. Charles westward along the Boone's Lick Road as far as Cottleville. The road was known as the Western Plank Road. Ultimately, the road project failed because the timbers soon began to warp and rotted away after just a few years.

Construction also continues adding approximately 65 additional paved parking spaces in and around City Hall and Legacy Park bringing the total number of new spaces serving Legacy Park and surrounding areas to approximately 200. Design work is underway to also add 11 parking spaces on Chestnut Street behind the Cottleville Post Office.

Dirt and rocks are classified as solid waste items. These items interfere with the yard waste machinery. Please put these items in your solid waste container for collection.

Yard waste must be placed inside City issued brown yard waste container(s) for curbside collection. *ONLY leaves may be placed in brown paper lawn bags for collection during; March, October, November, December.

  • A maximum of 20 brown leaf bags per collection day. 

Now You Know – Curbside Blue Bag Recycling

Blue bags are how Cottleville residents enrolled in the recycling program, recycle curbside. Paper items go into one blue bag, and containers go into a separate blue bag.

Those blue bags are then placed into your city solid waste container along with your regular trash bags. Recycled materials in the blue bags are sorted at St. Peters’ Recycle City facility on Ecology Drive, and then they are sold on the open market to offset trash costs.

Cottleville uses blue bags for an effective “dual-stream recycling” system that separates containers from paper items. Separating containers from paper makes Cottleville’s recycled items marketable because of a very low contamination rate.

The term “dual-stream” is used because both trash and recyclables are collected in the same cart and sorted later. This is different from single-stream recycling, which is when all recycled items are placed together in the same container. Single-stream recycling causes contamination due to the mingling of containers with paper.

Enroll here: Blue Bag Crew Enrollment

Pledge to Recycle Bags & Learn How to get More Blue Bags....

In 2020, Cottleville switched to a recycling enrollment program called the "Blue Bag Crew". By enrolling in the Blue Bag Crew, you pledge not to use Blue Bags for any other purpose other than recycling. Once you receive your blue crew sticker on your green solid waste container, you are enrolled. Please use the Blue Bags to recycle by placing all of your paper items in one Blue Bag and all your recyclable containers in another Blue Bag. Place your recycling Blue Bags filled with recyclables into your cart along with your trash bags. To request more Blue Bags, tie a Blue Bag (or any plastic grocery bag) onto the handle of your trash can. If you have the Blue Bag Crew sticker on your trash cart, the driver will drop off a new roll of Blue Bags when they see you’ve tied a bag on your cart.

**If you live within a multi-family complex, such as an apartment or condominium, you can sign up for the Blue Bag Crew program and receive a one-year supply of Blue Bags delivered to your home. When your Blue Bag is full, place the Blue Bag in one of the dumpsters at your complex along with your trash bags. When the driver picks up the trash and Blue Bags from the dumpster, the load will be taken to Recycle City for sorting and the Blue Bag items will be recycled.

Multi-family units need to enroll annually in the blue bag crew.
