Garbage, Recycling and Organics

Wayzata Garbage Pickup

City-wide garbage pickup and recycling are on Mondays. Garbage should be at curbside by 7 a.m. If your garbage was missed or you have questions on service, contact Republic Services at 763-972-3335. To change your level of service, contact Rebecca at Public Works at 952-404-5363. 

Garbage Stickers and Collection Schedule

Garbage stickers for extra garbage bags over your level of service are available at City Hall for $3.50 each. Each sticker buys the equivalent of a 30 gallon garbage can or bag. Residents are only allowed six additional bags with stickers per pick up. 

The City of Wayzata also offers every other week garbage pickup.

Spring Clean-Up Curbside Household Pick Up 

Each spring the City of Wayzata provides a curbside household pick up for residential customers who pay for recycling, organics, and garbage service on their monthly utility bills. 2024 dates TBD.

Curbside Recycling Service

Wayzata's curbside recycling service allows you to mix recyclables in 1 cart. Don't bag your recyclables, just drop them, unbagged, into the brown cart. The following items can be placed in the single sort recyclables:
  • Aluminum cans
  • Cardboard
  • Glass jars and bottles
  • Mixed paper (including magazines)
  • Newspapers (including inserts)
  • Paper bags
  • Plastic containers
  • Steel cans

Recycling Symbols

All glass and metal containers are recyclable. But there may be some uncertainty about plastic containers. Plastic containers are marked (often on the bottom of the container) with a symbol that identifies if it’s recyclable. Plastic containers marked with the recycling symbol and with a number of 1-7 inside the symbol, are recyclable. Wine, soup and milk cartons (with the plastic spout removed) can be recycled. Styrofoam, PVC pipe, vinyl siding, plastic film (grocery bags and stretch film) are not recyclable. Learn more about recycling by reading our Single Sort Recycling flyer (PDF).
