Residential garbage collection

Fargo uses an automated, variable rate system and provides all residential garbage collection within Fargo city limits.  The fee for this service ranges from $6-$14 per month depending on the size of the garbage cart (requires Adobe Reader) you choose. The fee is charged to your utility bill. 

New residents should call (701) 241-1449 to receive information on our services. 

Garbage carts should be placed at the end of your driveway or in the alley by 8 a.m. on your collection day and removed from the boulevard by 6 p.m. the same day.

Roll-off dumpsters  are available for your home improvement projects.

Please call the Solid Waste Department at 701-241-1449 if you have questions about your residential garbage collection.
