Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling
Rain Barrel and Compost Bin Distribution: Sales are now open to order rain barrels, compost bins, and kitchen pails from the Recycling Association of Minnesota! The Minneapolis sale will be held on April 26th, 2014. You may order from any of their sale events and are expected to pick up your items purchased from the location you select. See products available and event dates.
Snow Shoveling: Remember to shovel around your garbage and recycling carts! A 3 foot path needs to be cleared from your garbage and recycing carts to the alley or street for ease of collection. See Snow Shoveling for more information.
Container rental program updates: Please see our Rental of Container webpage for changes to the program that began January 1, 2014.
Mattresses are recyclable and should be placed out on your recycling day only. Collection crews will sticker your mattress and return the following business day to pick it up. Mattresses are non-recyclable if they become water logged from rain or snow. Please keep your unwanted mattresses inside until the morning of your recycling collection to prevent them from becoming non-recyclable. You may also contact Solid Waste & Recycling and let us know that you'll be placing a mattress out the day after your recycling collection for pickup. Our customer service staff will notify the collection crew so that it will be picked up.
