The 2014 residential yard waste season stops at the end of November, unless there is a significant snowfall before this week, then yard waste collection will end at that time.
During residential Yard Waste Season, yard waste is collected weekly on the same day as your garbage. Yard waste must be set out by 7 a.m. to ensure collection. If you believe your yard waste was missed, please call Advanced Disposal at (763) 786-7233.
There is no additional cost for yard waste collection during residential yard waste season – it is included in your standard garbage collection rate.

When signing up for garbage service, solid waste customers have two options for yard waste collection:
No Grass Clippings option
Residents who choose to mulch their grass clippings and not set them out for collection will receive a $12 annual credit against their garbage bill. Participants can set out leaves, twigs and weeds.
Full Service option
There is no additional charge for residents to have their grass clippings collected. In addition, leaves, twigs and weeds can be set out with the grass clippings.
You can call Utility Billing to find out which option you currently have, or to change your options. Also see the article on how to start, stop or change your options.

The City of St. Louis Park will once again offer a residential brush drop-off program. This program was created in response to residential feedback and perceived need regarding the lack of options for disposing of brush/ branches larger than four inches in diameter, which is the current maximum size to be removed via curbside yard waste collection...

Pay Attention to the Public Right-of-Way
The strip of land along the curb (typically 6-8 ft. deep) is reserved for public use (i.e. sidewalks, snow pushed by plows, etc.). Do not install fences, underground irrigation lines, or plant shrubs in the public-right-of way.
Don't Rake Leaves and Grass Clippings onto the Street
Raking leaves and grass clippings onto the streets is a violation of the City of St. Louis Park Erosion Control Ordinance. If you employ a lawn service, make sure they keep leaves and grass clippings off the street as well.
When rainwater carries leaves and grass clippings down streets and into lakes and ponds, they harm water quality. When leaves and grass decay, they release phosphorus which results in excess algae growth and scum. Leaves and grass clippings do more damage to our lakes than fertilizers, pesticides and motor oil!
Clean Out Catch Basin Grates
If your home is next to a catch basin (the grate covering the opening on a curb), remove leaves clogging the catch basin opening so water doesn't pool up and create slippery spots.
Never Dump Leftover Pesticides or Chemicals onto the Sidewalk, Driveway or Street, or Down the Storm Sewer
Rainwater will carry these chemicals - directly and untreated - into area ponds and lakes where they harm water quality!
