Project Background
Over the past year, the Macalester-Groveland Community Council, with the support of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, hosted a series of community conversations about ways to improve our trash hauling system in the City of Saint Paul. We also collected feedback from Saint Paul residents through an online organized trash collection survey. In addition, we met with numerous communities that have organized recently, conducted interviews with additional stakeholders and invited all haulers licensed for residential service in the City of Saint Paul to a conversation.
