URGENT ONE-SORT NOTICE: Do NOT place plastic bags into your one-sort cart. You may place paper bags full of recyclables into your one-sort cart. If collecting recycling in plastic bags, the bags need to be emptied into the cart and the plastic bag needs to be placed in the garbage or brought to a grocery store for recycling.
Yard Waste season begins the week of April 8, and must be in compostable bags or your own reusable container. See the Yard Waste page for details.
One-Sort Recycling is coming to Minneapolis! This program will be rolled out in phases. Check the One-Sort Web Page for frequent updates and information.
Recycling Credit will no longer be a separate line item on your bill. The base fee & recycling credit were combined reducing your base fee by $7.00 per month. Billing information is available on the Solid Waste Billing Page.
Mattresses are Now Recyclable! Collected on recycling week only - limit of 2 large items per recycling week. Place next to your garbage cart and post a sign or write on the item "For Solid Waste". Mattresses will be picked up the next business day after recycling day.
