Residential Garbage Collection

Fargo utilizes a volume-based garbage program which consists of a truck with an automated arm which lifts the cart and empties the garbage into the truck. The City of Fargo provides all residential garbage collection within Fargo city limits. The monthly fee is determined by the size of cart the resident selects. Garbage carts should be placed at the end of your driveway or in the alley by 8 a.m. on your collection day and removed from the boulevard by 6 p.m. the same day.

For cart repairs or exchanges, please call 701.241.1449 or e-mail the Solid Waste Department at

Roll-off dumpsters are available for your home improvement projects.

Temporary Containers are also available for your home improvement projects.
