Public Collection is not new to communities in Ramsey and Washington Counties. Currently, several communities in the two counties have contracts for collection of garbage from residents, and about 75% of the cities and townships have contracts with private companies for collection of recyclables from residents. These documents provide some background on the experience of cities and townships in looking at or implementing some version of public collection.
