What if I am already signed up for Vierkant's organics program?

If you’re currently a Vierkant customer, you will not be charged twice. You will still get a new organics cart from Vierkant in April. Your current Vierkant organics cart will remain and become a yard-waste only cart. 

Vierkant will no longer accept co-mingled organics and yard waste because the commercial composting facility the organics are taken to will not accept the materials together. If you have concerns or questions, please call Vierkant at 612-922-2505.
