We encourage every household to become involved in helping find ways to reduce our garbage. Everything you recycle counts! As you develop a routine in your daily life, you’ll discover that it is easy to reduce your garbage volume, and thus the dollars spent on garbage hauling, by 50% or more.
Single Sort Recycling is now available in the City of Perham. Totes must be 3 feet away from any object and at curbside the same time as garbage.  Please contact the City of Perham at 218-346-4455 or Steve's Sanitation at 218-346-4834 if you have any questions. Pick-up dates will also be listed on the City Calendar. Recycling is billed on your City utility bill. 
If you do not have a black and yellow City of Perham recycling tote at your residence, please call the City of Perham at (218) 346-4455.
