Licensed refuse haulers in Maple Grove


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, including those listed below, please contact Republic Services at 952-941-5174 or  Republic Services will respond to your concerns within 24 hours.  Please include your address and phone number.
