Collection Days

To find your collection day, contact Republic Services at 952-941-5174.

Recycling, garbage and yard waste are picked up on the same day of the week.  Please note that each material is picked up in separate trucks; each collection truck is designed for the materials it picks up, so recycling, garbage and yard waste cannot be placed in the same truck.
