FREE brush drop-off program for residentsupdated: Thursday, February 11, 2016
The brush drop-off site will open Saturday, April 30 and remain open during operation hours through Sunday, October 30 for the 2016 season.
The City of St. Louis Park offers a seasonal residential brush drop-off program. This program was created in response to residential feedback 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 (including storm damaged tree debris) to this site.
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 open seasonally at the 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, one will be located 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 are seasonal:
