At the Heart of Lake Minnetonka


Republic Services provides refuse collection through a contract with the City.  The refuse at all homes is picked up on Mondays in conjunction with the recycling pickup.  Each household is limited to two 32-gallon cans of garbage per week.  Additional garbage containers will be charged a fee directly by Republic Services.  Republic Services also has an extra item pick up charge for miscellaneous items such as appliances, chairs, mattresses, etc.    Please call (952) 941-5174 to schedule an extra pickup.

The contractor observes the following holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.  If one of the above holidays falls on Monday, pick up will be on Tuesday of that week.

Garbage rates are divided into three categories with quarterly rates as follows:

If not participating in recycling 


If participating in recycling                                                                                                            


Senior Citizen participating in recycling


Seniors 65 years of age or older are limited to one 32-gallon can.  Persons interested in taking advantage of the senior rate should contact City Hall to specify that you meet the senior citizen requirement.  All residents are charged a $36.50 fee for recycling.  Residents who recycle are charged a lower garbage rate than those who do not recycle. 

Garbage rates are billed quarterly with the water and sewer bill.
