City of Moorhead Cleanup Days 

One of Moorhead’s favorite times of the year is almost here…Cleanup Days. During the weeks of May 6-10 and May 13-17 (Oakport neighborhood is May 21), furniture, household goods, and appliances will be collected at single-family residence curbs on scheduled garbage days beginning at 5 am at no additional cost.

  • Your Cleanup Day will be your garbage day, OPPOSITE your recycling week.
    • If you are on A Week Recycling (red), your Cleanup Day will be on your garbage day the week of May 13-17.
    • If you are on B Week Recycling (blue), your Cleanup Day will be on your garbage day the week of May 6-10.
    • Exception: Oakport will be May 21, same as recycling day.

Apartments are not eligible for curbside pickup. Residents may bring excess garbage to the Resource Recovery Center at the times noted below, free of charge with proof of residency.

Cleanup Days require a huge amount of effort, coordination, and cooperation. Please follow these guidelines:

  • Tires will NOT be collected at the curb. Homeowners will need to dispose of them at retail tire stores or the Resource Recovery Center for a fee: $4 for passenger tires; $13.75 for truck tires.
  • Sort appliances, furniture, household garbage, metal, etc. into piles; different trucks collect specific items.
  • Use disposable containers such as cardboard boxes (no loose garbage please).
  • Do not set items out more than one day earlier than your Cleanup Day.
  • During Cleanup Days, crews will not return to pick up garbage set out after your garbage day.
  • Two appliances per household will be picked up free of charge. Remove refrigerator and freezer doors for children's safety.
  • Do not place food or waste inside appliances.
  • No commercial waste will be accepted.
  • Keep garbage totes at least 4 feet away from Cleanup Days items.
  • Empty propane tanks will also be collected (valves do not need to be removed). 

If you would like to get a jump on spring cleanup, bring furniture, household goods, and excess garbage to the Resource Recovery Center (3322 15 Ave N) from April 24-May 12 from 8 am-4 pm, free of charge. (This also applies to apartments.) Fees will apply for demolition/construction materials; proof of Moorhead residency required (i.e. driver’s license).
