River View Sanitation Policy Statements

Residential Curbside Service:

Carts should be out by 7:00AM on service day to ensure pickup.  We ask Sleepy Eye Residents to have it out the night before as the Sleepy Eye crew starts at 4:00AM.

We have updated our trucks for residential curbside garbage service and need our customers help for smooth service. With the new automatic arm sideload trucks, our drivers do not need to exit the truck, allowing us to perform our jobs safely, efficiently, and reduce costs. We will only service RVS carts for residential curbside garbage.

If your container is not left within the guidelines shown, your container will not be serviced. DO NOT use bungee cords or any type of weights on top of the container.

Temporary Dumpster or Rolloff Services:

These services are provided on a pre-pay basis only. Full payment for delivery and first dumpster full must be paid prior to delivery of the container. If customer requests the dumpster be dumped and left to fill again, another payment will be required prior to dispatching the service.

New Ulm Residents requesting temporary dumpster service where dumpster placement is on the street - The City of New Ulm requires a Right of Way Use Application to be filled out. This is now an online application found on the city's website at https://www.newulmmn.gov/166/Building-Safety

Annual Landfill Use Notice

As required by law, this is annual notice of the Sanitary Landfill currently used by River View Sanitation.

"You may be responsible for any liability that results from contamination at a facility where your waste is deposited. Minnesota believes that its waste management system provides substantially more financial and environmental protection than depositing waste in landfills in other states. Managing your waste in Minnesota may minimize your potential liability."
