Solid Waste

The City does not pick up brush, yard waste or any other kind of refuse. There are seven licensed refuse haulers for the City of Edina, with which residents must privately contract for garbage-pick-up.

They are:

  • Aspen Waste Systems, 612-884-8000
  • Republic Services, 952-941-5174
  • Curbside Waste, Inc., 763-504-2872
  • GarbageMan of Edina, 763-269-8182
  • Vierkant Disposal, 612-922-2505
  • Waste Management, 952-890-1100
  • Suburban Waste Service, 952-937-8900

For information on obtaining or renewing a refuse hauler's license, call Edina's Deputy Clerk at 952-826-0409.

Garbage containers should be set out by the house or garage or at the curb by 7 a.m. on pickup day. After collection, containers must be stored out of view from the front street.

The City does not pick up compost, tree branches or other yard waste. There are compost and tree branch disposal drop-off sites in the metro area. Bags of brush and yard waste may be placed at the curb no more than 12 hours prior to collection. Grass and leaves cannot be raked into the street.

Please note as of Jan. 1, 2010, yardwaste can no longer be set out in plastic bags for collection. Residents who have made arrangements with their refuse haulers to collect their yardwaste or organic waste will be required to use compostable bags – either paper bags or those clearly marked as compostable. Compostable bags are distinct from regular plastic bags because they are usually clear or a green-tinted opaque color. Most home improvement, grocery and hardware stores now carry them. Be careful not to purchase biodegradable bags. They are different from compostable bags because they contain plastic.

Exceptions apply! If you do not bag your material and use a yardwaste cart from the hauler, then the hauler can dump the unbagged material directly into their collection truck. If your hauler empties the plastic bags before they take the material to the compost facility you may be able to use plastic bags. Check with your hauler.
