Acceptable items include old/unusable furniture, mattresses, carpet, general household junk (up to 100 lbs. per item), vacuum cleaners, and appliances. 


The cost of the bulky waste curbside cleanup program has more than doubled in the past five years. To reduce costs the Hennepin Recycling Group agreed to set limits on the amount of material collected. Minor changes include:

  • General junk and household building materials: Pile limited to ONE level truck bed (Generally 4’ x 8’ x 2’).
  • Unusable furniture: Limit TWO.
  • Mattresses or box springs: Limit TWO.
  • Appliances: Limit TWO


Items exceeding limits will be left behind by the hauler. Residents will need to arrange and pay for separate disposal.


Items NOT accepted include: electronics (TVs, computers, etc.), hazardous material, paint, concrete, railroad ties, tires. You may dispose of hazardous material and paint for free at the Hennepin County Drop-Off Facility, 8100 Jefferson Highway, Brooklyn Park. They also accept electronics and tires. There is a small fee on some items.

Have material out by 7 a.m. on the day of collection in your zone. Trucks will only go through your area once. However, there will be three different types of trucks - one for appliances, one for bulky items, and one for regular trash. Each truck will come at a different time on your collection day.
