Because the process is paid for through our citizen's collection fees, it is intended for reasonable household quantities related to spring/fall cleaning. The City will not take commercial quantities, large residential construction projects or large piles of tree stumps/branches.

Household quantities of bulky and household items - items at the end of their useful life, such as appliances, furniture, junk, etc.
Items considered 'Household Hazardous Waste' will not be collected. This includes paint cans, oil containers, stains, varnishes, solvents, pesticides, herbicides, or car care products. An annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection is scheduled every spring for City of Minot Sanitation Customers.
Place your items by 7:00 am on your scheduled spring/fall collection day. Place the items on the front yard boulevard. If you have alley collection, your City issued waste cart will still be picked up in the alley, but the extra materials will need to be on the boulevard. Please leave room around your waste cart. Different crews will be coming by to pick up your extra trash, and different types of waste may be picked up at different times.
If you miss your collection day or have additional waste you'd like to dispose of, the City of Minot Landfill will be waiving the fee for self-hauling during Spring/Fall Clean Up Week. Proof of residency such as a utility bill with current Minot address will be required for reasonable household quantities at no charge during this week. Commercial or large quantities can be hauled to the landfill during this time or at any time of the year for a reasonable fee.
In addition to the regular sanitation collection trucks, we have several pieces of equipment collecting various types of clean up week materials for proper disposal. Separation in the collection provides for recycling of metals/appliances, etc. so items will be picked up in varied timelines by the type and purpose of the equipment.
While the City will collect small quantities of branch clippings, large tree trunks and branch piles are difficult to handle for the City crews on clean up week. It takes all of our crews and equipment the entire week to collect the miscellaneous items and household quantities in a timely manner. Large tree and branch removal projects are the responsibility of the homeowner and should be contracted with private contractors who provide that level of service and have the appropriate equipment to dedicate to the project. Residents may self-haul any large quantities to the City Landfill if they wish.
Any time of the year, City of Minot garbage collection patrons can simply call in to request a bulk collection (i.e., furniture & appliances) for as little as $10 per item. Also, in July of each year a week of free dumping at the landfill will be offered with a utility bill.
If you live in an apartment you are serviced by a private hauler hired by the property owner. Residents with private collection will not be eligible to participate in the Spring or Fall Clean Up.
