2019 collection of leaves and bundled brush ends the week of Nov. 18

Your garbage day in the week of Nov. 18 is the last 2019 collection for leaves, brush and other yard trimmings. Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling customers can set properly prepared yard waste at their alleys or curbs next to their garbage carts by 6 a.m. on garbage day.

Yard waste must be in compostable bags – paper (Kraft) or compostable plastic – or unbagged in a reusable container 26-32 inches high, no more than 26 inches wide, with sturdy handles. Reusable containers are lifted and emptied by hand; they must be easily managed. Yard waste is not allowed in City-provided containers.

Which bags can be used in the program?

Bags marked “biodegradable” or “degradable” do not meet the State law and are not accepted.

It’s against the law and bad for our lakes to rake leaves into the street.

Anyone with questions about leaf and brush pickup can call 612-673-2917 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. People can also find more information here.
