A-Z Recycling & Disposal Guide
Ramsey County guide for recycling and properly disposing of items.
Apartment and Business Recycling
There is no municipally-administered recycling collection service for multi-unit complexes in Arden Hills unless they opt-in to the city's recycling contract. It is required that property owners of any multi-unit dwelling provide occupants with the opportunity to recycle.
Weekly curbside recycling is provided by Republic Services. Dependent upon property location, recycling collection will occur on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
Event Recycling Container Lending Program
Make your next gathering a green event! Reserve free recycling and food scraps containers to reduce waste. Containers come with bags and signage and collapse for easy transport. Containers are loaned to Ramsey County residents and organizations for any temporary event.
At Fix-It Clinics, residents bring in small household appliances, clothing, electronics and more to receive free guided assistance from volunteers with repair skills to disassemble, troubleshoot and fix items.
Household Hazardous Waste Disposal
Many household products you use to clean your kitchen and bathroom, maintain your car and home, and control animals and insects contain hazardous materials. Bring these items to Ramsey County's free household hazardous waste collection sites for safe disposal.
A number of items can be repaired rather than disposed of or thrown away. Other items need to be recycled in a specific place. Learn more here.
Free or reduced-cost electronics recycling is available to Arden Hills residents.
Reuse & Donation Opportunities
Reuse resources and opportunities are widely available in Ramsey County. Before disposing of an item, consider if it can be repaired, donated or sold.
Unwanted Medicine Disposal
Safely dispose of unwanted, expired and unused medicines for free at one of six public drop boxes in Ramsey County.
Yard Waste & Compost
Arden Hills encourages backyard composting of kitchen scraps and yard waste. Composting is an easy way to reduce waste while improving your yard and garden soils. In Minnesota, 12% of all waste produced in households is food scraps and up to 18% is yard waste.
