Minneapolis leaf bag and brush pickup ends week of Nov. 15

Your garbage day in the week of Nov. 15 is the final opportunity in 2010 for the collection of leaves, brush and other yard trimmings by the City of Minneapolis at no additional charge. Set bags of leaves and bundles of brush next to your garbage cart by 6 a.m.

Branches and leaves must be tied or bagged. Leaf bags must be smaller than 33 gallons and weigh less than 40 pounds. Branches must be less than three inches in diameter and less than three feet long, and bundles must weigh less than 40 pounds.

If you have questions about leaf and brush pickup, call 673-2917 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is against the law to brush your leaves into the street.

Or… ‘recycle’ your leaves and grass clippings
