City-owned Garbage Collection
The City of Farmington's garbage system is unlike any other community in Dakota County. The City-owned and operated automated collection system uses less operators and equipment and provides residents with an efficient and cost effective service. Recycling, yard waste service, temporary dumpsters, and pickups for large items are provided by a private contractor, selected through a proposal process.
Benefits to having this service provided by the City include reduced wear and tear on streets, reduced traffic and noise; same day pickup in neighborhoods provides aesthetic benefits (cans at the curb once a week), excellent customer service, and concern for the environment.
