Recycling throughout the city is collected by a single independent contractor, Republic Services. Recycling services are provided every other week. All items should be placed inside the recycling cart. If you have extra recycling, a convenient resource is the city's Recycling Drop-off Center.

Recycling carts remain with the home when you move. When moving into an existing home, there should already be a cart there. New residents should notify the City of Maple Grove utility billing at 763-494-6330. Recycling fees are included on your city utility bill.

For all of your recycling needs, including those listed below, please email Republic Services or call them at 320-252-9608. Republic Services responds to concerns within 24 hours. Please include your address and phone number.
