New Waste Hauling Ordinance Starts April 1

Starting April 1, garbage collection days for residential customers will be limited to Mondays and Fridays. This is the most visible change resulting from the new waste hauling ordinance passed by the Golden Valley City Council in November 2019.

Other changes require haulers to provide a schedule of charges, submit inspection records and summaries of driver training, increase insurance coverage, provide waste containers made of at least 25 percent post-consumer material, and limit truck weight to 7 tons per axle on residential streets. The new ordinance also set the target number of residential licenses at four, which will be achieved over time as haulers fail to renew licenses. All current haulers will retain their licenses until they fail to renew.
