City-owned Garbage Collection
The city of Farmington is among the nearly 30 percent of communities in Minnesota that have organized garbage and recycling collection services.
There are two types of collection systems; open and organized. In an open collection system, customers choose their own waste hauler. In an organized system, waste hauling services are coordinated by a public entity. Benefits to having organized collection service include reduced wear and tear on streets, reduced traffic, pollution, and noise. Same day pickup in neighborhoods provides aesthetic benefits (cans at the curb just once a week), increased recycling capture rates, and excellent customer service.
