Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling
Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling customers will have an organics recycling option starting in 2015 - 2016. Read the City's press release for information about the program roll-out and to find out how you can sign now to participate! Please continue to take advantage of the Residential Organics Drop-Offs until the citywide Organics Recycling program roll-out is complete.
Holiday Tree Collection: Place your tree next to your garbage cart by 6:00 a.m. on your regularly scheduled garbage day. If the tree is six feet or taller, make sure to cut it in half.
Snow Shoveling: Remember to shovel a 36" wide path through the snow, including snow left by the plow, from your carts to the alley or curb line. Please do not shovel snow into the alley as it makes collection more difficult for our crew, it makes maneuvering alleys more difficult for you and your neighbors, and it is not allowed per City ordinance 427.150. For more information visit our Snow Shoveling webpage.
Yard Waste Collection - Yard waste collection has ended. If you still have yard waste that you'd like to get rid of before collection begins again next Spring, call Solid Waste & Recycling at 612-673-2917 and our Customer Service Representatives will provide you with locations that are accepting yard waste.
PaintCare is here! Residents may now bring their latex or oil-based house paint and stains to participating retail drop-off locations around the City for proper disposal. If still usable, latex paint will be recycled into new paint and oil-based paints will be sent to a cement kiln and used as a fuel source to operate the kiln. Please note that aerosol cans, solvents, and paint accessories (brushes, trays, etc.) are not accepted. For paint purchasing tips and drop-off locations visit PaintCare's website.
Residential Organics Drop-Offs: For more information, visit our Organics webpage. Now Open: Pearl Park, South Transfer Station, Van Cleve Park, Audubon Park, and Armatage Park
