Recycling Services (Residential)

Find out if Walters Recycling provides Single Sort recycling services in your city here. We appreciate your commitment to recycling! Recycling Service is provided every other week on your scheduled garbage collection day. If you need an extra recycling cart please call our office (763) 780-8464 to make arrangements.

Remember to always leave your recycling items loose. Please do not use a plastic bag to collect your recyclables, rather just place them loosely in your cart. Plastic bags can get caught in the machinery which can cause damage to the machinery or a delay in production. Additionally, when there are two or more items connected to each other, they cannot be recycled, even if they’re all recyclable.
