Shoreview switches recycling carriers

Shoreview switched its recycling provider as of July 1. The city delivered new recycling carts to residents in late June for new provider Eureka Collection, according to a city update. 

Crews for the old provider, Republic Services, said the city, last collected Shoreview recycling the week of June 18 and picked up Republic carts in late June. 

Eureka began its collection the week of July 9, leaving a three-week gap in collection, as there was no collection the week of July 2. Due to this, said the city, Eureka will collect any extra recyclables set out in paper bags next to recycling carts for the first week of collections. 

The city update said residents’ collection day won’t change. An updated recycling calendar will also be placed on new carts and on the city website at www.shoreviewmn.gov.

If Shoreview residents still have their old Republic Services cart, the city said to contact Republic by phone to arrange for them to pick it up. Republic’s phone number is 952-941-5174.

For residents who have received their new Eureka cart but would like a different sized cart, the city says to call Eureka at 612-669-2783.

If a Shoreview resident has yet to receive their Eureka cart, or has any other recycling issues, call the city at 651-490-4665.
