Trash and Recycling Service Delays  (Updated: 11/8/2022)
Waste Management has a severe lack of commercially licensed drivers and the company has informed the City that trash service from last Thursday and Friday was skipped, but they will ensure service for these zones this week. They also said they plan to catch up on recycling from last week. The City will deduct the skipped services for the affected properties on their next bill. Please report issues or missed pick-ups on the City’s customer support form at www.columbiaheightsmn.gov/refusesupport. The City apologizes for the delays and appreciates your understanding and patience.
