The City of Shoreview is committed to reducing, reusing and recycling products in our community. Shoreview's curbside recycling program is funded by a combination of users fees, county, and state grant monies.
The City of Shoreview changed its recycling provider July 1, 2018!
Republic Service Collection and Carts: Republic Services last collection took place the week of June 18th.If your old recycling container was not collected by Republic crews in late June, please call 952-941-5174 to arrange for your cart to be picked up.
New Carts: As part of the new contract, the City purchased recycling carts for residents. The new carts were delivered in late June. If you would like a different sized recycling cart, please call Eureka Recycling at 612-NO-WASTE (612-669-2783).
Eureka Collection: Eureka will be picking up recyclables beginning the week of July 9th. This leaves a three week gap in collections between June 18th and July 9th. Because of this, there will be no recycling collection service the week of July 2nd. Please note that your collection day is not changing. If your household is typically collected on Monday, that will continue on Monday, July 9th. For example, recycling collected on the 1st and 3rd Mondays, will now be collected on the 2nd and 4th Mondays. Given that there will be a three-week gap in recycling collection service, Eureka will collect any extra recyclables set out by your cart in paper bags during their first week of collections. An updated recycling calendar was placed on your new cart when it was delivered and is also available below.
