How to Request for Special Clean Up

Cleaning, Moving or Remodeling or Just Needing Some Help Removing Trash? If you need a special clean up, we can help!

If you have extra garbage and want to request a special clean up, we can provide that service for a fee. The cost of a Special Clean Up has a minimum fee of $100.00 with an hourly rate of $181.00. 

Once the crew has completed the cleanup, they will report the time to the billing staff who will calculate the final fee.  Do NOT pay your hauler. It is not legal from them to accept any type of cash or gift from you.  We add the fee for the clean up to your Minneapolis Utility Bill.

  1. You must complete a request for Special Clean Up form.

  2. The request must include a copy of the utility bill payer’s current Driver’s License or State issued ID.

  3. The form must include the name, address and phone number of the water bill payer for the service address requesting the clean up.

  4. The debris must be contained and be at the alley or curb line by 6:00 am on the requested date of the clean up.

  5. Fax, mail, or email the Request for Special Clean Up form and the required verification to our office.

  1. Call Solid Waste & Recycling to confirm that the Request for Special Clean Up Form has been received.
