Connections - A Weekly Update from the City of Hopkins

Free Holiday Tree Pick-Up is Week of January 6

Holiday trees will be picked up curbside, free of charge for Hopkins residential garbage customers the week of January 6. You do not need to call to schedule this service —simply place your tree on the boulevard (no alley pick-ups) by 6 a.m. the day of your garbage service. Wreaths or decorations containing metal pieces will not be accepted, and bags and stands must be removed.

Broken Lights? Don't Toss Them!

Don’t throw those broken or unwanted holiday lights in the trash! Instead bring them to Hopkins Public Works. All stringed lights and electrical cords are accepted, including extension cords, phone cords and computer cables. Hopkins Public Works is located at 11100 Excelsior Boulevard. 

Residents Encouraged to Register for Rave Mobile Safety

The City of Hopkins now uses Rave Mobile Safety as the City’s new emergency notification system. Rave is a free service that allows individuals to sign-up for notifications sent from state and local authorities to keep residents informed on potentially hazardous situations involving weather, traffic and other emergencies. The new notification system replaces Code Red. All Hopkins residents, community members and travelers who previously registered for emergency alerts with Code Red must register again with Rave. Learn more about Rave and how to register here.
