Do you know where your trash goes after it leaves your curb? The City of Hopkins invites you aboard the first Tour de Trash, a day trip for residents age 13+, for a first-hand look at what happens to your trash on August 3.
The City provides weekly automated garbage collection & bi-weekly recycling collection services to all single family, duplex, triplex, and fourplex residential housing in Hopkins. The City's mandatory recycling ordinance requires all residents and businesses to recycle.
Collection routes run on a four-day schedule, Monday through Thursday. For schedule changes due to holidays, see collection schedule.
For an additional charge, the City also collects brush on Tuesdays and bulk items and yard waste on Thursdays. You must call to schedule these pickups and yard waste must have a yard waste sticker attached.
Per Minnesota State Statute 115A.931, Yard Waste Prohibition: no person shall place yard waste in their mixed municipal solid waste.
Follow these guidelines to make sure that your refuse and recycling will get picked up.
Minnetonka Public Works Facility, 11522 Minnetonka Blvd
Hopkins and Minnetonka operate a self-service recycling drop-off center open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Look for the cream-colored wood sign and enter using the driveway just west of the sign. The green containers are on your right. The Drop Off Center accepts the same items as curbside recycling.
If you need to get rid of residential trash outside of your weekly pick up dates, please see Hennepin County's Green Disposal Guide or call 612-348-3777.
