Please visit Hennepin County's Green Disposal Guide for locations that accept yard waste year-round.
During residential yard waste season, yard waste is collected every week on the same day as your garbage at no additional charge. Yard waste must be set out by 7 a.m. to ensure collection.
Yard waste includes garden waste, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, wood chips, twigs and branches. Set yard waste out for collection in one of these ways:
Use your own reusable container. The container should be 32 gallons or smaller, sturdy and have handles so it can be lifted by a single person. Containers do not need to be lined with a compostable bag.
Use certified compostable bags, brown paper Kraft lawn bags or brown paper grocery bags. Regular plastic bags are not accepted.
Branches must be less than 4 inches in diameter and less than 4 feet long. Tie branches into bundles or put in one of the container options listed above.
Note: Each container, bag or bundle should weigh no more than 40 pounds.
If you believe your pickup has been missed, contact Waste Management.
