It is illegal in Minnesota, to place yard (grass, leaves, small brush and plant materials) and tree waste in with your household garbage.
Contact your waste hauler to schedule weekly or bi-weekly yard waste pickup or a special one-time pickup. Your hauler will let you know how to prepare your yard waste and fees associated with pick-up.
Compostable bag required
Residents that bag their yard waste for curbside pick-up must use compostable bags or paper bags.
Paper and compostable bags break down into compost along with your food and yard waste. Regular plastic bags do not break down and need to be picked out of finished compost.
Contact your waste hauler for more information.
