How to Get a Voucher

Call Solid Waste & Recycling at (612) 673-2917 during our regular business hours: Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Tell us what you will be taking to the transfer station, as we need to confirm that the items you want to dispose of are accepted.

Let us know when you want to use the voucher as we issue vouchers for a specific week or Saturday.


The transfer site is closed Sunday, Monday and Holidays.

*Please plan for enough time to have your debris unloaded by the station’s closing time. Once you enter the transfer station, you must first weigh in, and then you may unload your items in certain locations(s) as directed by the station attendant. Once you have unloaded your items, return to the outbound scale to weigh out.

When you order a voucher you will be offered a confirmation number. Please keep this number handy when you use your voucher as it can help us locate your voucher in our system.

We do reserve the right to limit the number of vouchers that can be issued in a specific week or Saturday.
