Recycling changes Jan. 16

Many St. Paul residents will experience a recycling collection day change on Jan. 16. For the past few months, St. Paul has been handing out new recycling carts. If you still need a recycling cart, contact your local district council. 

All households will receive a 64-gallon cart. Households are asked to use the 64-gallon cart for 90 while the city goes through the transition to new recycling service. After 90 days households can change to a 32 or 95-gallon cart by calling Eureka Recycling at 651-222-7678. One switch will be allowed at no charge. Households can keep their old curbside bins to collect recycling in their homes or for other uses. If you do not want your old bin drop it off at Arlington Hills Community Center (1200 Payne) or Palace Community Center (781 Palace Ave.) between Jan.9 through Jan. 27.

Starting Jan. 16, additional items will be allowed to be recycled, including paper towel and toilet paper rolls, cardboard food containers and refrigerated boxes. 

Residents with accessible alleys will have their recycling pick up from the alley. If you are unsure where your recycling will be picked up call 651-266-6199.

For more information about the collection day change for recycling, go to or call Kris Hageman, environmental coordinator for St. Paul Public Works at 651-266-8866.
