Vierkant Disposal is one of six licensed haulers that residents may choose from when needing garbage and yard waste removal. Below is all the information Edina residents should need to learn how we collect your trash in a clean, safe, friendly manner, and if you come to find you would like to start service with Vierkant, please don't hesitate to contact us.

If you cannot physically get your garbage and yard waste carts to the curb or simply want our walk-up service, please contact us.

Cart Sizes

Vierkant offers three sizes of carts including a 32 gallon (fits about 2-3 kitchen bags of trash), a 64 gallon (fits 4-6 kitchen bags of trash), and a 96 gallon (fits 7-10 kitchen bags of trash) See Below For Pictures. When it comes to your yard waste and organics cart we offer a 64-gallon cart size only. If you come to find either your garbage or your compost/yard waste cart is too small you can call our office to request larger or second garbage or compost carts.

Garbage

Vierkant Disposal currently offers weekly garbage pickup for the city of Edina. As stated above we offer 35, 64, and 96-gallon carts for our customers.

The City of Edina splits the city up into 5 different service days, to see which day your trash pickup is please reference the map below.

We ask that all garbage and yard waste/organics carts are at the curb for collection by 7 am on your service day.

Any extra trash must be bagged and placed neatly next to your cart for pickup and large quantities may result in a small one time fee on your bill.

If you would like pickup of an appliance, furniture item, or large quantity of extra trash, please contact us for pricing of collection and to make us aware of the setout before your service day.

Vierkant Disposal does not dispose of hazardous waste such as harmful chemicals, paint, propane, etc.

Organics and Yard Waste

Vierkant Disposal launched our "Go Green" organics program in the summer of 2008 for our city of Edina customers to recycle their yard waste and organic material. We are currently the only hauler in the city that accepts organics material at the curb.  Customers who choose to participate in our organics program will be given the option of participating in a per bag program or our subscription program that includes an organics/yard waste cart (See Below for Pricing and details). Organics pick up does continue throughout the winter but will be bi-weekly collection.
