Effective April 1, 2021, ACE Solid Waste, Inc. will be the new residential recycling service provider for Anoka city residents. The current residential recycling contract with Republic Services, Inc. expires on March 31, 2021.
Anoka’s Waste Reduction & Recycling Board (WRRB) distributed a Request for Proposals last fall to compare costs and services in preparation to negotiate a new 5-year contract. Four proposals were received; ACE Solid Waste, Inc., Republic Services, Inc., Walters Refuse & Recycling, Inc., and Waste Management, Inc.
A committee reviewed and scored each proposal and presented the results to the WRRB. After review and discussion, the WRRB members determined the proposal from Ace Solid Waste, Inc. offered the services and fees that best fit the needs of the residential recycling program.
Delivery of the new recycling carts and containers for both single family and multi-family properties will take place March 15-26. With your cart, recycling information and the service calendar will be included, plus information on the free app and WasteWizard tools.
It is very important that you do not use the new ACE carts until April 1st. Republic Services will pick up the blue recycling carts March 22nd-26th.
Your cart will be removed after it is serviced by Republic, so please leave it out and keep it empty until the truck picks it up. In some cases it may take a day or two between the last service date and the removal date, so please keep it out and empty.
For updates about the transition, please watch for the spring edition of the City View newsletter arriving at the end of March. Included on the city's website is the WasteWizard link from Ace Solid Waste to help with questions about how to dispose of materials. Plus a schedule tool to help you search your address to learn of your service schedule.
- Ace Solid Waste - 763-427-3110 - Call if your new black cart was not received by April 1st.
- Republic Services - 952-941-5174 - Call if your blue cart was not removed by April 2nd.
Together, we will strive to make this a seamless transition. We thank both companies for their service to the City of Anoka.
