Commercial Servies


Walters knows that businesses can sometimes get lost by giant waste hauling corporations.  The specialized needs of our customers are addressed with easily adaptable schedules and equipment.  This is the foundation of our success.  Our trucks are radio equipped and our drivers are extremely capable of handling any issue.  Our team of safe, efficient and friendly drivers use trucks equipped with state-of-the art routing and GPS systems.  In addition, we are well underway in converting our fleet to be powered by clean burning, quiet and abundant compressed natural gas (CNG).

We can pick-up your garbage and/or recycling:

  • When you call for service
  • Once a month
  • Every other week
  • Up to 6 times a week (in certain areas)

Walters can provide your business with cardboard/paper recycling as well as Single Sort co-mingled recycling.

The Minnesota Legislature recently expanded recycling requirements to Commercial Buildings, effective January 1, 2016.

Are you affected?
If you are the owner of a commercial building that meets the following criteria, you will need to have recycling collection:

  • Located in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, or Washington county
  • Contains one or more businesses classified in sectors 42 to 81 under the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS codes)
  • Contracts for four cubic yards or more per week of trash collection

What must be collected?
A minimum of three recyclable materials must be collected. Possible material types include, but are not limited to:

  • Paper
  • Glass
  • Plastic
  • Metal
  • Organics

Single-sort recycling (collecting multiple recyclable material types in one container) meets the requirement, as long as three (3) or more materials are included in the collection.

For more information on the new requirements and help on deciding what containers best fit for your needs, just give us a call at (763) 780-8464 or email us at

Fuel Adjustment

Walters Recycling & Refuse, Inc. is committed to providing superior services as well as attentive customer care. Since June of 2000, we have included a fuel surcharge on your invoices. Due to our inability to control variable the changes in fuel costs, and our desire to provide our customers with an equitable, tangible adjustment, we have instituted a fuel index. The fuel surcharge will be adjusted monthly based on the then current weekly U. S. Department of Energy published diesel price per gallon for the Midwest Region prior to the date that your invoice was generated.

We would like to thank all of our customers for their loyalty over the years – we appreciate it!
