The City of Independence hosts an annual Spring Clean Up Day and is typically held on the first Saturday in May. Please view our Spring Newsletter, Website, and Facebook page for more up to date information as it approaches. 

If you are still looking to get rid of a bunch of junk but our Clean Up Day is so far away, below are a couple of great drop off sites:

We hope this helps! 
The City of Independence contracts with Republic Sanitation for all recycling in the community.

Republic will be offering one-sort recycling and free use of a rolling recycle bin. 

If you missed a collection, please contact Republic Services at 763-972-3335. 


Hennepin County's Hazardous Waste Collection Events happening throughout the year give residents many local disposal options for their household hazardous wastes. Residents are encouraged to safely store their household hazardous waste until they are able to attend a collection event.

PLEASE NOTE: The county will NOT be accepting electronics at the collection events; household hazardous waste will be accepted only.

If questions, contact Hennepin County at or by calling 612-348-3777.
