Billing & Service Fees

Residential trash, recycling and yard waste service is billed directly by Republic Services.  All billing questions and service changes should be directed to Republic Services at 952-941-5174.    

About Your Invoice

You are billed monthly directly by Republic Services. Bills not paid within 30 days will be charged $5 late fee. Bills not paid within 90 days will be turned over to the Township to be added to your property taxes. Additional Township and County fees may be added.

Recycling and yard waste services are itemized on invoice because they are not subject to State tax or County fee.

Extra Charges

You may be charged for extra household refuse. The rate is $2.50 per 30-gallon bag. To avoid this charge, make sure your weekly service level is large enough for your home, and put everything in your cart. Larger piles of construction debris or brush are priced at $20 per cubic yard.

State Tax & County Fees

Trash service is taxed, but recycling and yard waste is not taxed. Reduce your bill significantly by downsizing your trash container and increasing the amount you recycle.

The Ramsey County Environmental Charge (CEC) is 28% of the taxable portion of your services, and the State Solid Waste Management Tax is 9.75%.
