Save Money with New Low-Volume Trash Service
As part of its organics program, Columbia Heights is now offering every-other-week 30-gallon trash service for only $10/month. Service is limited, i.e., nothing outside of the cart is taken for free. To qualify, residents must already have the yard waste/organic cart service and attend the Southern Anoka County Cities Recycling Class.

To change your refuse service or for questions, email publicworks@columbiaheightsmn.gov or call 763-706-3700.
