About Yard Waste Collection

updated: Thursday, October 29, 2015

The last week of yard waste collection is the week of November 23, 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
