Adopt-A-Litter Container: A little help to make our City shine

Minneapolis is a pretty amazing place. With so many things to do and sights to see, what’s not to love? But let’s face it, our beautiful City has some unsightly messes. So let’s all work together to tidy it up. With just a little help, we’ll make this place shine. The City of Minneapolis has placed litter containers in high pedestrian traffic areas in an effort to reduce the amount of litter that finds its way onto the street. When you volunteer for the Adopt-A-Litter Container program, you’re helping us place and maintain litter containers in other areas that need them.

Select from two levels of involvement by either (A) removing filled bags from the litter container and placing them in your garbage cart or waste dumpster, or (B) requesting removal service from the Division of Solid Waste and Recycling for a monthly fee to be added to your utility bill. The cost for removal services is $12 per month for once a week pickup, $24 per month for twice a week pickup, plus tax. For questions or to sign up, contact the Solid Waste and Recycling Division’s Clean City Coordinator, Michelle Howard at 612-673-2789 or visit
