Event Recycling

Clear Stream Containers

Clear Stream Containers are now available at the Township's Offices. Whether you're hosting a block party, graduation, family reunion, or other gathering, make it a green event! Consider using recycling and organics containers to reduce waste. These portable containers collapse for transport and come with your choice of signage and bags that attach to the assembled frame. Containers are loaned at no cost to Ramsey County residents and organizations for any temporary gathering.

Container Pickup & Drop-Off Location

The pickup and drop-off location is at White Bear Township Administrative Offices at 1281 Hammond Road, Monday - Friday between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Remember to clean out your containers before you return it.

Reserve for Your Next Event

Call 651-747-2750 to reserve your bins. Plan for a recycling and food scraps container to be next to each trash can to make recycling and trash disposal easier. It is recommended that you limit your number of trash and recycling stations. Please check out some Tips for Planning a Successful Green Event (PDF).

After Event Disposal Options

Where to Recycle the Bottles & Cans You Collect

You have three options:

  1. Arrange for pickup service with a recycling service provider. A list of businesses can be found online at Business Recycling.
  2. Transport your cans and bottles directly to:
    Advanced Disposal
    309 Como Avenue
    St. Paul, 55103
    Phone: 651-487-8546
  3. If you collected a small amount of bottles and cans, recycle them at home in your curbside recycling bin.

Where to Compost the Food Scraps that You Collect

Here are some options:

  1. Ask if your trash service or recycling service provider also collects food scraps for composting and can provide pickup service at your event.
  2. If you are collecting only five bags or less of food scraps, you can drop them off at a Ramsey County Collection Site during regular hours. Look for the "Organics Recycling" collection dumpster.
  3. If you are collecting more than five bags of organics, call ahead at 651-266-1199 for pre-approval. Staff will direct you to a Ramsey County Food Scraps that has sufficient capacity.
