Columbia Heights offers single-sort recycling service through Advanced Disposal Services, Inc. (formerly Veolia Environmental Services). If you are in need of a recycling cart, please call Advanced Disposal Services at (763) 225-8705.

Recycling should be placed in the same location as refuse for collection. Recycling is collected every other week on the same day as refuse. See the Garbage and Recycling Schedule Map for collection days in your area or follow this link to Advanced Disposal's website.

Please call Advance Disposal Services at (763) 225-8705 or contact them via e-mail if you have been missed on the collection route or for other service issues.
See items that are picked up with curbside recycling.

Households can exchange the 64 gallon recycling cart for a 96 gallon recycling cart for the same flat rate.

Multi-dwelling Recycling

The cost to dispose of garbage has increased significantly in Anoka County.  The more reusable material that is placed in the recycling bin lowers the tons of solid waste paid for at disposal.  Owners/Managers are encouraged to order additional recycling containers (for no added cost) and inform tenants of the increased recycling opportunity.  The carts have labels on top of the lids describing what can be recycled.  It is best to have a building caretaker check the containers prior to collection day to ensure garbage was not placed in them, as they cannot be emptied if trash is present.  Please encourage tenants to recycle.  Recycling flyers are available in multiple languages at the Public Works Department located at 637 38th Avenue; or call (763) 706-3700 to request additional recycling containers and promotion materials.  We also have apartment recycling totes tenants can use to help separate recycling and carry to the recycling cart outside.  An onsite recycling review is requested when delivering the apartment totes.

Recycle and Re-use Opportunity
Visit the Anoka County Recycling and Disposal Directory for a comprehensive list of materials and items that can be recycled or re-used, such as used motor oil, aluminum cans, propane tanks, cardboard, plastic bottles, and fluorescent bulbs. For each directory item there is a list of places in or near Anoka County where residents can go to recycle items free of charge or for a small fee.

For more information on recycling visit the Rethink Recycling web page provided by the Solid Waste Management Coordinating Board (SWMCB) in the Twin Cities metro area for the counties of Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey and Washington.
