The average American household receives more than 60 pounds of unwanted mail each year! According to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, it takes about 100 million trees and 38 billion gallons of water to produce one year's worth of junk mail in the US. Our Ways to Reduce Junk Mail page will save you time and help protect those natural resources.

Items should be placed loose in the recycling cart, not bagged. If you have extra cardboard, it can be flattened and tied with twine and placed next to the recycling cart. Do not place out extra cardboard when it is raining or snowing. If you would like to upsize your recycle cart from 65-gallons to 96-gallons or request a larger cart, please call 763-572-3594 or email Rachel.Workin@fridleymn.gov
