Organics Recycling Containers Get Dropped Off This Week

Organics recycling is nearly here and there are a few things residents should know before service starts Jan 7, 2021.

What is organics recycling?

Organics recycling is the collection of food scraps, non-recyclable paper, and other compostable products. By diverting these products to a commercial compost facility, they can be recycled into nutrient-rich soil instead of ending up in a landfill. 

Why is this happening now?

Hennepin County required all cities with more than 10,000 residents to make curbside organics recycling available by Jan 1, 2022.

How does this affect me?

The Golden Valley City Council chose an all-in, everyone-pays method for organics recycling. This means all single-family through four-plex households should have received an organics recycling cart from Republic Services already and will see an increase of $17 on their quarterly utility bill.

What if I don’t want a cart or don’t want to pay?

If you received a cart and don’t want one or if you want a different size, email Republic Services at Residents cannot opt out of the quarterly fee.

What do I do if I have questions about organics recycling?

The City of Golden Valley has compiled a list of FAQs for residents to reference. If residents have questions not answered on the FAQ, please contact Republic Services at 763-972-3335 or
