Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling
Holiday Collection: Collection will not be affected by the Presidents' Day holiday on Monday February 18, 2019. Please place your garbage, recycling, organics recycling, and up to two large items out by 6 a.m. on your regular collection day.
Although collection is not affected, Solid Waste & Recycling's office will be closed on Monday February 18, 2019.
Shovel snow around carts: If the collection crews cannot easily wheel your carts to the truck, they cannot service them. 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 or street as it makes collection more difficult for our crew, it makes maneuvering alleys difficult for your and your neighbors, and is not allowed per City ordinance (427.150).
Yard waste collection has ended for the year. If you have yard waste that you'd like to get rid of before collection begins again next Spring, visit Hennepin County's Yard and Tree Waste Disposal webpage for drop-off options or call our office to speak with our customer service representatives will provide you with drop-off locations that accept yard waste.
Take a tour of the recycling facility: You can now sign up to attend a tour of the recycling facility where the City's one-sort recyclables are sorted back into paper, plastic, glass and metal. Tours are offered monthly, however, space is limited and some restrictions apply. Click here for more information, tour dates, times, and how to sign up. If you can't attend a tour in person but still want to see how the recycling system works, watch Eureka Recycling's Story of a Cereal Box video.
