City of Minot release

The City of Minot will offer free dumping at the City Landfill between Dec. 27 and
Jan. 6 to help Minot residents dispose of household waste that could accumulate
during the holidays.
City of Minot Sanitation Superintendent Josh Kraft said residents receiving City
sanitation services can dispose of trash at the landfill free of charge during the
holidays by bringing a current water bill for verification. Residents should separate
recyclable materials from non-recyclable items. Attendants at the landfill scale will
direct them to the proper locations to drop off both types of items.
As a reminder, wrapping paper, extension cords, and Christmas lights are not
recyclable, and should be placed in residential garbage containers.
The landfill will be open on Dec. 23 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but will be closed on
Dec. 25, Dec. 26, and Jan. 1. The landfill will resume normal hours of 8 a.m. to 4
p.m. on Dec. 27 and then again on Jan. 2.
There will be no residential garbage collection on Dec. 25-26. There will be no
recycling collection on Jan. 1, but there will be a makeup recycling collection on Jan.

  1. All other collections will run as scheduled.
    Between Dec. 22 and Jan. 12, the City will provide designated dumpsters at two
    locations to help residents dispose of real Christmas trees. The dumpsters will be at
    Site # 7 located at 16th Street SW and 16th Avenue SW (near KMOT) and at Site #3
    located at 11th Street NW and 4th Avenue NW (Oak Park). The dumpsters will have
    signs to identify them as being only for real Christmas trees. The City will also pick
    up real Christmas trees that are placed near residential garbage/recycling carts.
    “We’re asking residents to make sure they remove all lights, decorations, bags, and
    stands from the trees before dropping them off or placing them for collection,” Kraft
    said. “These trees are shredded for mulch, so we can’t have anything on them that
    interferes with that process.”
