Garbage Hauling

Under Golden Valley's current open system, residents contract individually with a hauler of their choice for trash collection, while recycling collection is provided through a single hauler contracted by the City. 

The Golden Valley City Council arrived at this decision in 2019 after years of research by staff and the City's Environmental Commission and input from residents. City staff compiled all public feedback into a Community Input Report containing resident emails, survey responses, social media analytics, and more.
