Trash Collection – Send in Your Bill

The Saint Paul City Council has introduced a resolution to consider organized trash collection within the city, and the City Council is looking for feedback from residents to help set priorities for thinking about an organized system. Information collected through these efforts will help the City Council understand residents’ current expectations and priorities around trash collection.  It is anticipated that the collected information will be presented to the city council at a meeting in May, 2016.

  • Provide input on organized trash collection through Open Saint Paul here.
  • Share your trash bills with the city to help City Council better understand what residents are currently paying for their trash service.
