Contact Information

Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling customers will have an organics recycling collection option starting in 2015-2016. Read about the program rollout and find out how you can sign up now to participate. Please continue to use the residential organics drop-offs until the citywide organics recycling program is rolled out.

 

Residential organics drop-offs

It’s easy to participate

  1. Sign up to the drop-off nearest you by clicking one of the links below, and begin collecting organics in compostable bags (paper or plastic) from your kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms.
  2. Bring your bagged organics to the drop-off site.
  3. Place the bagged organics in the organics carts during the hours of operation.

By participating in the residential organics drop-off program, you may be able to reduce your garbage cart to the smaller size, which results in a $3 per month savings on your Solid Waste & Recycling bill.
