Residential Recycling

Effective April 1, 2021, ACE Solid Waste, Inc. will provide residential recycling service to single family and multi-family households.

The City of Anoka contracts with ACE for single-sort recycling service - no sorting or separating! Simply put all of your acceptable recycling items loose (do not bag) in the recycling cart and ACE will take care of the rest.  Do NOT put plastic bags in your recycling.  

Find your schedule and answers about how to properly dispose of materials in the WasteWizard below.  Download the free MyACETrashMN app for your Android device or iPhone and never forget your recycling collection day again!  

If your address doesn't populate in the schedule search, please check back later in March.  Addresses are still being added.  Thank you for your patience.  

Single-Family Households

Place all of your recyclables in your single sort container and wheel it to the curb by 6 a.m. on your designated pick-up day. Service occurs the same day your garbage is picked up, but recycling is serviced biweekly.   Effective January 1, 2021, the recycling fee for single-family households is $4.75/mo.; billed through the city.    

Apartment Renters

Ask your manager about the centralized storage location for recycling at your apartment building. If your apartment building does not offer recycling, please contact your manager to see that it is added. By law, residents must be provided the opportunity to recycle. Effective January 1, 2021, the recycling fee for multi-family households is $4.00/mo., billed through the city.  For multi-family properties with weekly service, the fees is $4.00/week.  

Annual Recycling Events

The City of Anoka also hosts two recycling drop off events each year. The spring event is the last Saturday of April and the fall event is the last Saturday of September each year at 501 Pierce Street in Anoka from 8 am to Noon. Some fees apply. Additional events are added throughout the year. Check out the Community Events calendar on this website to learn more.

Yard Waste Service

Residents, do you have yard waste you need to dispose of properly? If so, please contact your garbage hauler directly to inquire about its yard waste service. As a reminder, the City of Anoka does not contract to provide yard waste service. Another option is to utilize the Anoka County Bunker Hills Compost Site, located at 13285 Hanson Boulevard in Coon Rapids. For more information about the compost site, call 763-767-7964 or visit Anoka County Compost Sites page.

Household Hazardous Waste

Do you have some hazardous materials that you are unsure how to dispose of properly? Visit Anoka County’s Household Hazardous Waste Facility page for full details on what the facility will accept.

If you think something is recyclable, but you are not sure, contact the City Recycling Manager or Anoka County’s Recycling and Resource Department. By keeping your recycling free of contaminants, it is easier to sort and send to markets, which keeps costs down for all of us. And remember, when in doubt, throw it out!
