Collection of residential refuse will be on Wednesday of each week. It is the responsibility of each resident to place such garbage or refuse at the curbside no later than 7:00 a.m. on that day. Residential pick up may be done as early as 7:30 a.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m. Residential trash collection will NOT occur on the following holidays: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or New Years Day.
Republic Services prefers that you do not use cans, containers, or other units to hold bags. However, if you insist, use only Republic Services bags place inside the container. Leave the lid off so the bags may be clearly seem. Do not tie the bag to the container. If you do use a special container, the City of Duluth cannot guarantee that your garbage will be picked up, since this is not part of the City’s contract.

Yard trimming (leaves, clipped grass, limbs, etc.) are no longer accepted in lined sanitary land fills. Yard trimmings may be disposed of at the Dumpsters at the City Public Works Facility. All grass, leaves, pine straw, hay, etc must be in brown recyclable paper lawn bags to be accepted. Dumpster Card is required.
If you experience any problem with cats, dogs, raccoons, opossums, or other animals breaking into your trash at the curb, try misting the bag with an ammonia mixture. This rarely occurs, but when it does, ammonia usually solves the problem.
