2017 collection of leaves and bundled brush ends the week of Nov. 13

Oct. 13, 2017 (MINNEAPOLIS) Garbage day in the week of Nov. 13 is the last 2017 collection for leaves, brush and other yard trimmings. Yard waste must be in compostable bags – paper (Kraft) or compostable plastic – or unbagged in a reusable container at least 26 inches high with sturdy handles. Yard waste is not allowed in City-provided containers. Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling customers should set all yard waste next to their garbage carts by 6 a.m.



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

If you have questions about leaf and brush pickup, call 673-2917 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Find more information here.
