A monthly charge of $10.18 per dwelling unit is added to each resident's water bill. This amount includes the cost of collection of all residential garbage and the cost of burying that garbage in the City of Minot's Landfill. Fees are based upon the current operating budget and are adjusted periodically to reflect the cost of service.
City crews do not pick up debris from new home construction. New home construction covers the first year from the time the water is turned on. All waste generated by a contractor will be the responsibility of the contractor or occupant.
All construction, demolition debris, along with bulk items left behind by tenants at an investment/rental property during the time of no tenant occupancy, are the responsibility of the property owner and cannot be placed on the curb for pick up by sanitation crews.
Only trees and hedge trimmings cut by the homeowner will be picked up curbside by a separate truck. Trees cut by anyone other than the homeowner will not be hauled by the City. For more information please view the Tree Removal Policy (PDF).
