FREE brush drop-off program for residentsupdated: Tuesday, May 13, 2014
The Brush Drop-Off Site is open for the 2014 season!
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. You may bring any size woody debris (branches and logs) to this site, including storm damage tree debris. The intent of the residential brush program is to facilitate larger branch removal from yards, assist residents with storm clean-ups, promote the removal of buckthorn on private properties, and reduce the amount of illegal dumping of woody vegetation that occurs on city properties.
The residential brush drop-off location is the current city brush disposal site (2501 Edgewood Ave. S.), located at the intersection of Cedar Lake Road & Colorado Ave. S.). There will be two attendants on duty, including one at the entrance gate, to monitor and record material loads and check City of St. Louis Park residency (MN ID or driver’s license as proof; non-residents will be turned away). The other attendant will direct people where to drop their material. The hours of operation, effective Saturday, April 19, are:
- Saturdays: 7 a.m. – 3 p.m.
- Sundays: Noon – 4 p.m.
- Tuesdays: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
(The program will run through October 28, 2014)
Materials accepted: Woody vegetation to include brush and logs.
Materials NOT accepted: Grass clippings, leaves, root balls, lumber, wood scraps, fencing, trash, sod, fill, any commercial services material, construction material or similar items.
