Winter Collection Reminders
During the winter months, bad weather, such as icy or heavy snow conditions, may occasionally present problems for your regularly scheduled garbage and recycling collection. Look for your Winter Collection Guide delivered to residents’ mailboxes! The Winter Collection Guide has helpful tips, as well as information and numbers you can contact if you have collection issues.

Do Not Place Carts in the Street - and Other Winter Collection Reminders
Winter weather is here! To help our crews with plowing efforts, do not place your carts in the street (or snowbanks) for collection. We are working with Eureka Recycling and the garbage haulers to make sure they place carts back on the boulevard. Help our haulers safely collect your recycling this winter and follow these Winter Collection tips, also found online at stpaul.gov/wintercollection
