Tell us how you feel about and what you prioritize related to trash collection.
The city of Saint Paul has been considering a move to an organized system of trash collection. In its most simple terms, organized trash collection is a system for collecting trash in which one or multiple trash haulers are authorized to collect trash from a specific service area. In an organized system, one trash hauler would pick up the trash from your block on a set day for a set price that has been negotiated by the city.
Currently, Saint Paul has an open system of trash collection. This means that property owners must contract with their own hauler to have their trash picked-up. Haulers don’t necessarily work in specific areas, so several different haulers may collect from a single block. Individuals must negotiate their own price with a trash hauler.
As we begin to think about organized trash hauling in Saint Paul, we would like to hear what features of trash service are important to you. This information will help us set priorities for trash collection within the city.
