The city of Saint Paul, through its partnership with Eureka Recycling, provides recycling services to all Saint Paul residents. Saint Paul's curbside recycling program is sponsored by Eureka Recycling, the City of Saint Paul, the State of Minnesota SCORE funds through Ramsey County and your neighborhood community council.
Visit the City of Saint Paul's website, for complete information on recycling and waste reduction, including residential curbside recycling, yard waste, composting and more.
Recycling day for the West Seventh area is Tuesday’s. Have your cart out by 7 a.m. with arrows facing out toward the street/alley and 2 feet of space around the cart. Materials should fit loosely inside your cart with lids closed. In winter, please remember to shovel a space for your cart.
Carts are 65 gallons in size. If you have service questions, call Eureka Recycling at 651-222-7678.
Recycle Smart - Keep paper plates and cups out of your recycling cart.
Paper cups and plates cannot be recycled because they are often lined with plastic or contaminated with food.
Some paper plates and cups may be accepted for composting, but these products must have the BPI logo on them to ensure that they are certified to fully break down in the composting process. If you’re unsure if an item is certified for compostability, check BPI’s website or put the item in the garbage.
Recycle Smart and avoid using disposable paper plates and cups by choosing reusable options instead. If you need to use disposables, purchase compostable products.
For businesses in the Twin Cities trying to determine how to dispose of unwanted materials, this local Business Recycling Guide is a good place to get started.
