Collection pick-up

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. DO NOT place trash on curbs before 3:00 PM on Tuesdays. 

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 placed inside the container. Leave the lid off so the bags may be clearly seen. 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 contract.
