Shoreview has an open garbage hauling system. Residents can choose their own garbage hauler for trash pickup from the 2019 Solid Waste Hauler List [PDF].
Reduce the amount of waste you generate and save money by getting a smaller garbage cart from your hauler. Trash haulers are required to offer different size carts so get only the size you think you need. The smaller the cart, the less you will pay for trash collection.
Before you throw it, can you fix it? Bring new life to your broken items through the Ramsey County Fix-It Clinics. Every month a team of volunteers conducts a free Fix-It Clinic at various locations throughout Ramsey County. At Fix-It Clinics, residents bring in small household appliances, clothing, electronics, mobile devices and more to receive free guided assistance from volunteers with repair skills to disassemble, troubleshoot and fix items. Fix-It Clinics build community connections and reduce the number of repairable objects that are thrown in the trash.
Find more information on the Fix-It Clinic Program.

Where does my garbage go?
It is important to keep waste out of landfills. Haulers are required to inform their customers in writing each year where they take their waste for disposal. Waste can now go to a Resource Recovery Facility where it is processed into fuel to burn to produce electricity.
Are there additional charges I may see itemized on my bill?
Some haulers charge additional fees such as a fuel charge or environmental fee but do not include these at the rate you are quoted.
How do I get rid of extra items that do not fit in my cart and what will it cost me to get rid of items?
Call your hauler to check if they can pick it up from your curb, or take any time to any of the transfer stations listed below. Please call ahead to check hours of operation and charges. Usually, haulers require pre-payment for curbside pickup services. The City does offer two clean-up day events a year also, with various charges for each item.
