Starting on January 16th new 64-gallon recycling carts with wheels and lids replaced blue bins. Cardboard food containers, refrigerated boxes, and cardboard tubes will be accepted in the single-sort recycling carts.
For addresses within Union Park, recycling pickup has changed to Monday. If you have access to an alley, your recycling will be collected from the alley. Residents without alley access will put their recycling cart out at the curb.
Starting in April, if you would like to try a smaller (32-gallon) or larger (95-gallon) cart you may request a switch by calling Eureka Recycling at 651-222-7678. One switch will be allowed at no charge. Visit stpaul.gov/recycle for frequently asked questions and more information.
