Republic Services provides residential garbage, recycling, bulk-item pickup and yard waste services for the City of Shakopee.

City Code 51.03 requires all single-family dwellings, duplexes, triplexes and all other residential units that receive individual curbside pickup of refuse and have municipal water and sewer service to have refuse service from Republic Services. Residents are billed quarterly for these services.

Each household receives a city-owned garbage cart and a recycling cart. Both carts have lids and wheels. Residents may choose (with rates charged accordingly):
  • 35-gallon
  • 65-gallon (standard recycling cart for townhomes)
  • 95-gallon (standard recycling cart for single-family homes)

Refuse is collected once a week; recycling is collected every-other-week. It is always on the same day of the week. Residents must have their refuse and recycling at the curb by 7 a.m. on their collection day.
