The city's recycling is collected under a city-wide organized program by a single independent contractor, Republic Services. Recycling services are provided bi-weekly.  All recycling should be placed inside the recycling cart.  If you have extra recycling, our recycling drop-off center is a convenient resource.

Recycling carts should be left with the home if 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 the following issues, please contact Rhonda in the Engineering Department (763-494-6361).  If you email or leave a voicemail, please include your address and phone number.

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

There is no cost to residents for a recycling cart and no price difference based on size.  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

* Missed Pickups

If your recycling cart was at the curb by 7 a.m. and not picked up by 7 p.m. on your scheduled day, leave your cart at the curb and contact Rhonda in the Engineering Department at 763-494-6361.  If you email or leave a voicemail, please include your address and phone number.  The maps and calendars below are helpful in keeping track of your recycling weeks.
