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 our recycling drop-off center.

Recycling carts remain with the home when you move.  If you move into an existing home, there should already be a cart there for you. If you are a new resident, please notify the city's utility billing department at 763-494-6330.  Recycling fees are included on your city utility bill.

For all of your recycling needs, please contact Republic Services at 952-941-5174.  For issues arising from the following scenarios, please call or email.  Republic Services will respond to your concerns within 24 hours.  Please include your address and phone number.  

  • Replacement of a damaged cart.
  • Exchange cart for a different size (sizes below).
  • Missed pick up on your scheduled recycling day (maps and calendars below). *
  • Cart delivery for a newly constructed home.

Recycling carts are free and fees are the same no matter what size you choose.  Carts come in three sizes:

  • Small (35 gallon) = 38" high, 20" wide, 25" deep
  • Medium (65 gallon) = 42" high, 25" wide, 30" deep
  • Large (95 gallon) = 45" high, 27" wide, 33" deep
