Republic Services Garbage / Recycling Hauler

The Centerville City Council has determined that one residential garbage hauler best serves the public interest of the City of Centerville. Council believes that by limiting the amount of hauler truck activity throughout the City, it protects the streets from over use and noise complaints. Council also believes that utilizing the services of one hauler and a several year contract, rates are kept at a minimum and competitive.

Plastic Bag Notice

Plastic bags are banned from use for yard waste.

Anoka County residents who bag their yard waste are required, by state law, to put their yard waste out for pick up in compostable bags. Either paper or compostable plastic bags* are acceptable.

For more information, visit the Anoka County website.

Disposal Into Streets

Please do not put any grass clipping or yard waste into the streets. All City streets are swept in the spring clearing them of sand and winter debris. Anything that goes into the street will ultimately end up in the storm sewer causing problems with the drains or the ponds, creeks and lakes they eventually flow into. 

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our streets and ponds clean!
