Appliances
Appliances are collected curbside as part of the recycling program. Each residential unit is allowed one appliance disposal per year at no charge. Items must come from the property.  There is a charge for disposal of additional appliances by the City contractor.  Refrigerators and freezers must be emptied and doors removed. 

Electronics
Electronic waste, or e-waste, is any waste that has a circuit board or a cathode ray tube (CRT), including televisions, computers, monitors, laptops, keyboards, speakers, printers, and other peripherals, VCR and DVD players, fax machines, and other audio, video, and telecommunication equipment such as stereos and cell phones.  Electronics cannot be put in with the trash in Minnesota.

Electronics Recycling Service

Electronics must be properly disposed of due to the hazardous nature of the material.   A $20.00 pick-up fee will be charged.  Items must come from the property where they are collected. This service is currently funded through a grant.

***For physical security, do not place electronic items on the curb, put them by the front door, back door, or garage door on collection day.  When making arrangements for pickup, advise the  CHHJ scheduler where the item(s) will be located.***

Residents may also drop items off at various disposal sites, which may charge a fee.  Approved sites are listed on the county and state web pages.
