How it works:
Customers of Ark Disposal may sign up for our NEW weekly organics recycling program. The program includes an annual supply of sixty 13-gallon organic compostable trash can liners for you to use to discard your food waste and food-soiled paper that will be mailed to you each year. Each week you simply place the organics waste bag towards the top of your regular trash cart and let us take care of the rest. Signing up is quick and easy, so contact us today for pricing.

Minnetonka Residents Special Note: The City of Minnetonka has received grant funds from Hennepin County to provide one free year of curbside organics recycling to the first 115 Minnetonka residents who sign up in 2019 (there are limited spots remaining). The free year of service is only available to first-time organics customers. Ark Disposal will invoice the City of Minnetonka for the organics collection service and the city will pay Ark directly. Residents will not be billed until after the first year of service.
