WM Yard Waste and Garbage Service Update

Updated: 6/22/2022


Last Friday, Mayor Carter met with the St. Paul Haulers consortium to discuss contract obligations, find solutions to address repeated missed garbage and yard waste collection issues with WM, and ensure reliable continued garbage services for residents.

As of Tuesday afternoon, WM reported to the City it completed collection of missed garbage services from previous weeks. WM also reported completed collection of all Monday (6/20) and Tuesday (6/21) garbage services. If you have Monday or Tuesday service, and your garbage cart has not been emptied, please contact the City at Submit a Complaint  

 If WM is your yard waste hauler, and you paid for subscription yard waste services, Highland Sanitation is your new yard waste hauler for the remainder of the 2022 yard waste season, which ends on November 30, 2022. Highland Sanitation has begun collecting subscription yard waste on the scheduled collection day. You do not have to renew your yard waste subscription service for 2022; the yard waste account will be transferred to Highland Sanitation automatically.

 Former WM customers with subscription yard waste service will be receiving an $80.00 credit from WM.

WM Yard Waste Delays
Updated: 6/14/2022  

WM has reported significant delays (3+ weeks) in yard waste collection. WM has failed to regularly collect trash and yard waste from Saint Paul residents, causing increasingly unsanitary and unacceptable conditions for our residents and neighborhoods. 

On June 10, the City of Saint Paul sent a detailed letter to St. Paul Haulers, LLC (the consortium of garbage haulers serving the Citywide Garbage Program) outlining the continuing service issues and requested actions that include: 

  • A detailed plan on how they immediately intend to provide back-up garbage and yard waste service to WM customers;  
  • A communication plan detailing how the Consortium will provide accurate and timely collection information to WM customers;  
  • Confirmation that WM will provide credits to affected customers; and  
  • A meeting of the Consortium’s leadership with Mayor Carter as soon as possible. 

Saint Paul Public Works is documenting reported collection misses and is exercising all the options under the contract to hold WM and the Consortium accountable. 

Please contact WM at 763-784-8349 with any collection questions. After you contact WM, residents can also report missed collections and complaints to the City online at: Complaint.

The City will post any updates or collection plans it receives from WM and the Consortium online here at
