Residential Recycling

Recycling Services - Twin Cities

Thanks to Simple Sort recycling from ACE, you can say goodbye to sorting your recyclables. Now, all the acceptable recyclable materials (please see list below) can be placed into one recycling cart that is collected every other week. Similar to a standard garbage container, the wheeled cart features a grey lid and labeling to indicate that it's for recyclables only. Making it easier to recycle means more material gets recycled, in some cases, as much as 30 percent to 40 percent more. And that's good for the environment and for all of us.

Plus, you are automatically entered into the Recycle Cash Program. Simply getting caught by our recycle referee with a full cart of recyclables makes you an instant winner of a $100 Visa gift card! It's the ACE difference.

ACE provides curbside automated collection service using special trucks with an automated arm that lifts the recycling cart and empties it into the truck. Please have recycle cart at the street by 6:30 a.m. on collection day to ensure collection.

ALWAYS PLACE ACCEPTABLE RECYCLING LOOSE IN YOUR CART OR IN BROWN PAPER BAGS. The right thing to do is put correct recyclables in the cart and don't hope or wish they can magically be recycled. The recycle cart may not be collected and/or additional fees will apply if in plastic bags or there are unacceptable items. Click Recycle Right to print and view acceptable curbside recycle items.
