New residential collection contract began Oct. 1

Waste Management (WM) recently began providing all solid waste collection services for residences and small businesses who receive city service. The contract began Oct. 1, 2018 and will last five years. Most of the city’s residential solid waste services will stay the same.

The most significant changes to the program begin in 2019 and include:

  • Additional service levels beginning January 2019, including every-other-week garbage collection for 20- and 30-gallon carts. Sign-up for these services will begin in December.
  • Organics and yard waste will be collected separately beginning Jan. 1, 2019. Residents with organics collection will need to set yard waste out separately in paper lawn bags, certified compostable bags or personal reusable containers.

A detailed solid waste and recycling guide was mailed to households that receive city solid waste collection at the end of September 2018. Make sure to save your guide to reference throughout the year. If you misplaced your guide, you can request a copy be mailed to you by contacting public works at 952.924.2562.
