Brooklyn Center is a member of the Hennepin Recycling Group (HRG), along with the cities of Crystal and New Hope. The HRG and the City of Brooklyn Park have a joint powers agreement for the administration of their recycling and waste management programs. The recycling administration office is located at Brooklyn Park Operations and Maintenance. 

The Hennepin Recycling Group (HRG) cities provide service to all single family separate/entry households and apartment buildings with eight or less units. All larger apartment/multifamily buildings are required to provide recycling services for their residents by using a private contractor. 

Recycling Service Fee
Each residential household is charged a monthly utility fee to support the Recycling/Waste Management Program and is collected through the utility bill. The program includes curbside collection of recyclables, the yard waste drop-off site, special materials drop-off days, and all public information and education activities. The fee is set by council or board action and may be re-evaluated and adjusted as costs and revenues require.

Recycling Pickup
Recyclables are picked up every other week at the curb, the day of your garbage pickup. Garbage and recycling pickup in the City of Brooklyn Center generally occurs on Thursdays in the west side and Fridays on the east side.  View the map to determine the day of garbage and recycling pickup in your neighborhood.

Curbside Collection Cart
The program provides every household with a recycling cart. A damaged or lost cart will be replaced at no charge. Carts are available in three sizes, 35, 64, and 96 gallon capacity. To request an additional cart or have a cart replaced, please call (763) 493-8006.

Disability Assistance
If you have trouble getting your cart to the curb due to a temporary or permanent disability then you may request walk up service by calling (763)-493-8006.
