2023 Garbage and Recycling Collection Calendar

Missed Collection

If you missed your collection day, or your recycling was not picked up, or you occasionally have extra materials, call 651-266-6199. 

Two options for extra recyclables that do not fit in your cart: 

  1. You can set out containers and paper in up to 6 paper grocery bags or 3 medium size boxes next to your cart.  Stacked and flattened cardboard can also be set next to your cart.  All cardboard must be able to fit inside the cart.  Drivers will empty your cart and then place all extra material inside the cart and tip it again. 
  2. Drop them off at the City of Saint Paul's Recycling Drop-Off Center.

If you consistently generate a lot of recyclable materials, you can change your cart size or have a second cart delivered for your use. Call the City's Recycling team at 651-266-6199 to request a cart adjustment.

Tag Hanging on Your Cart

If there is a tag hanging on the handle of your recycling cart after the recycling truck has passed your house- please read it carefully. Take note of the information and address the needed changes so that your recycling is not missed in the future. For information on how to properly use your recycling cart, visit our page for details.

Buying or Selling a Home?

No action is needed to set up or cancel recycling service at a residential property. Recycling services are funded though an assessment on your taxes; this will automatically switch when the sale goes through. Find your recycling collection day using the link below.

  • If you are selling a home- leave the blue recycling cart in a secure location at your property, for example, in the garage or out of site from the street or alley.
  • If you are purchasing a home- a blue recycling cart should already be at the property. If there is no recycling cart or you would like a different size, call the City of Saint Paul at 651-266-6199.
  • Trash service- call your garbage hauler directly after closing. Find out who your hauler is using the link bellow.
