Get first year free
The City of Minnetonka has received grant funds from Hennepin County to provide one free year of curbside organics recycling to the first 115 Minnetonka residents who sign up in 2019.
The free year of service is only available to first-time organics customers with curbside garbage collection through Randy’s Environmental Services (763-972-3335) or Ark Disposal (763-898-5226). To qualify, service must begin in 2019.
To get a free year of service contact your garbage hauler (Randy's or Ark only). They will invoice the City of Minnetonka for the organics collection service. The city pays the hauler directly. Residents will not be billed.
