Saint Paul is transitioning to Citywide Residential Garbage Services October 2018

What is Citywide Garbage Service?
Citywide garbage service is a new coordinated garbage collection system where each street/alley has one designated residential garbage hauler, and prices and services are consistent across Saint Paul. This program, which will begin October 1, 2018, will also work hand-in-hand with the citywide recycling program to support Saint Paul’s longer-term vision for reducing waste.

Garbage Information Line for garbage program questions: 651-266-6101.
