Extended Yard Waste Program in Brooklyn Park

The seasonal fee for Randy’s Extended Yard Waste Program in Brooklyn Park is determined by the first week in February each year. The season for our Extended Yard Waste customers begins the first full week of April. The last pick up will be the third full week of November. The Extended Yard Waste service allows for all bagged grass clippings or leaves and 2 bundles of brush to be taken each week. (Brush needs to be tied in bundles you can fit your arms around. The brush can be no longer than 4’ and no larger than 2” in branch diameter. A limited number of extra bundles of brush will be taken and billed per bundle.)
Call our service center if you would like to add or eliminate this optional service.

The Extended Yard Waste Program automatically renews the first statement of each year. If you were an Extended Yard Waste customer last year and are choosing not to subscribe to this optional service for the upcoming season, please call customer service prior to the last week in March to have the service and fee removed from your account.

If you choose not to subscribe to the Extended Yard Waste Program, you may request a pickup of your yard waste when needed by calling our customer service department to schedule. There is a minimum charge per collection. Extra bags are billable after the minimum is met.  
 
Some of these programs in certain service areas have limitations and have a collection day other than their trash collection day.

  • Only Randy’s trash customers can subscribe to our yard waste programs.
  • There is no credit for late sign up or early termination on the Extended Yard Waste Program.
  • As with all waste, we restrict bag weight to 40 lbs.
  • Yard waste needs to be at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on collection day, same time as your trash cart.

All Randy’s service fees are subject to an environmental fee and a fluctuating fuel cost adjustment.

Reminder: The new Minnesota State law (State Statute 115A.931-YARD WASTE PROHIBITION) requires that you now use compostable bags for your yard waste. The law was written to keep black plastic out of composting facilities, which creates an organic waste stream free of plastic.
Compostable bags include; Kraft paper bags or compostable plastic bags that are usally clear or a tinted shade of green, white, or pink. However the color is not a sure way of determining the compostability of a plastic bag. Compostable plastic bags must state that they meet ASTM D6400 standards for composting and that they are “compostable”. Not all bags marked “biodegradable” or “degradable” meet the state law. Most home improvement, grocery and hardware stores carry compostable bags. If you don’t see them at your local store, ask an employee.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be rewarded for recommending Randy’s Trash service to friends or family?

If you’ve found our service to be commendable and you “spread the word”, yes, we want to thank you! You can receive 1 free month for each new residential customer you refer to Randy’s.

Can I change my container to a different size?

Absolutely - Randy's offers several convenient container sizes to meet the needs of our customers. If your needs change, you may contact us to look into other container options!

Can I put an old microwave in my trash or recycle cart?

A microwave is an appliance that needs to be processed for recycling. Appliances cannot go in the trash or recycle carts. Other such appliances include:

Does Randy's match competitor's pricing?

Not news, but we certainly want to remind our residential customers that Randy's will match our competitor's offer.  Simply call 763-972-3335 and review the rates and services with one of our knowledgable customer service representatives.  We appreciate your loyalty and welcome the opportunity to review the services you have prepaid for, as well as additional services you may need.  Some restrictions do apply. Thank you.

Does the same truck pickup my garbage as does my yard waste?

MSW (Municipal Solid Waste) better known as “trash,” must remain separate. Trash, yard waste and recycling get disposed of at different facilities. These trucks may service your home on the same day, but they have different routes. Different routes mean different pickup times. So, you should keep your yard waste bags separate from the trash cart.

How do I dispose of my moving boxes?

Randy’s will take moving boxes and packing paper your first 2 weeks of service at no charge.  Simply place the broken down bundles of boxes (no larger than 3 feet by 3 feet and bundled together) and bags of packing paper next to your cart on service day.  Some restrictions apply.  Please call our Customer Service Center at (763) 972-3335 with any questions.

I had another hauler knock at my door last night. The offer is unbelievably low. Can Randy’s help me analyze my service and assist me in the comparison?

We welcome this kind of opportunity. Often times another hauler will hire outside marketing firms to sell their services. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. We do our best to be competitively priced and still offer the best service. We encourage you to call and allow one of Randy’s Customer Service representatives to review your service and pricing.

Is there a weight limit on the cart?

Yes, the cart has weight limitations based on its size and capacity, and the truck’s lift device also has weight limitations. In order to ensure the driver’s safety as well as the safe removal of your trash, you should not put bricks, rocks, sod, dirt, or any other such materials in your cart. They should only contain household trash.

My cart is broken, how do I get it replaced, and is there a charge to do so?

Your broken cart can be replaced by calling our service center. The cart delivery van schedule is not the same as your pickup day. Call our service center, and we will arrange for your cart replacement. There is no charge for carts broken under normal wear and tear.

My cart smells bad, what should I do?

The best way to clean your cart is to rinse it out with a hose. Soap and bleach can be used as cleaning and deodorizing agents.

What happens if I get my trash or recycle out late?

Randy’s will always offer to take double the volume the next week on your pickup day. If the cart is full, extra bags can be set on the side with no extra charges. Call our service center to arrange for double trash to be taken.

What items do I need to call ahead for pickup?

You need to call ahead for anything that doesn’t fit in your cart. In some cases we will have to send a different vehicle for pickup. Given a description of the item, Randy’s representatives can arrange for its removal. We do need all items to be brought to the curb.

What time does my trash, recycle and/or yard waste need to be out to the curb?

We ask that you have all waste down to the curb by 6:00 a.m. Most people find it convenient to set it out the night before.

Randy’s customer service representatives do a great job at handling their calls. They are ready and prepared to offer the best customer service.

Buffalo Switching from Waste Management to Randy's Sanitation

With the city's residential solid waste disposal contract due to expire Dec. 31, 2016, Buffalo City Council unanimously voted to terminate its contract with Waste Management, and accept a new five-year deal with Randy's Sanitation effective Jan. 1, 2017.

Waste Management has been the main provider for Buffalo residents over the past 20 years, according to City Administrator Laureen Bodin.
