Coming soon in 2015…Mankato and North Mankato are teaming up to provide a new curbside recycling program to help reduce waste and increase recycling.

Mankato's transition timeline--what to do
First two weeks of December
New garbage and recyle carts will be delivered (weather permitting). Carts will generally be placed at the end of the driveway or at the curb (in the boulevard). Please store carts inside a building (for example-a garage) or behind the required front yard setback.

December 8 through December 12
Last week to use current garbage carts (use of current recycling bins continues until January 1). Once garbage carts are emptied the week of December 8-12, it’s important to leave them out because Waste Management will collect and remove their garbage carts during this week.

December 15
Begin using new garbage carts only. Continue to use current recycle bins until January 1.

January 1
Begin using new recycle carts based on every other week schedule provided on online garbage and recycling map. Curbside recycling will be collected every other week on the same day it’s currently collected, i.e. if you have recycling picked up on Tuesday, recycling will continue to be picked up every other Tuesday. Recycling collection is on the same day of the week as your garbage pick-up. Zone A begins the week of January 1. Zone B begins January 5.
