Minneapolis Trash Schedule 2024 (Bulk Pickup, Holidays, Maps)

The City of Minneapolis is in Minnesota with Edina and Bloomington to the south, Blaine and Brooklyn Park to the north, and St.Paul to the east.

Have bulky items the city won’t pick up? You need a junk removal service.

If you have large items that the city won’t take from you, you may need to hire a junk removal service.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.

There are a number of junk removal services in Minneapolis and I’m sure many of them will be able to help you out.
