Winter Collection Delays

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. Problems may occur in isolated areas, such as a single street or alley. At other times, major weather events may cause widespread collection problems or delays. he City will post information online if there are widespread collection delays.

The City does not plow alleys. Please work with your neighbors to keep your alley accessible. If an alley or street  experiences a number of collection issues during the winter, we will work with you and your neighbors to get your collection back on track.

Missed Collection Due to Weather Delay

If the garbage or recycling truck is not able to access your cart(s) on an alley or street due to icy or heavy snow conditions, they may return within 24 hours to make a second attempt to collect. Please leave your cart(s) out and accessible at your collection location. If the alley or street can still not be accessed, your hauler will be back next week on your next scheduled collection day.

To report a missed collection contact your garbage hauler and/or recycling service provider.

Find your garbage hauler's local contact information by visiting stpaul.gov/GarbageMap and entering the property address. Contact Eureka Recycling at 651222-7678, visit EurekaRecycling.org, or download the Eureka App.
