FREE brush drop-off program for residentsupdated: Wednesday, January 14, 2015
The brush drop-off site has closed for the season as of October 19, 2014 and will open for the 2015 season on May 2, 2015.
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. Woody debris, branches, and logs (including storm damaged tree debris) may be brought to this site.
The purpose of the seasonal residential brush program:
- to facilitate larger branch removal from yards
- assist residents with storm clean-ups
- promote the removal of buckthorn on private properties
- 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.). The hours of operation are seasonal:
- Closed for 2014 season
- 2015 season begins on Saturday, May 2, 2015
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.
