Saint Paul Citywide Residential Garbage Services 

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 will also work hand-in-hand with the citywide recycling program to support Saint Paul’s longer-term vision for reducing waste.
