Yard waste pickup begins week of April 17, 2023

Yard waste collection will begin on your pickup day the week of April 17, 2023. Please be(e) friendly to our pollinators and consider leaving items untouched on your lawn for as long as possible. If you have yard waste that you'd like to get rid of before collection begins, find drop-off options on Hennepin County's Yard and Tree Waste Disposal web page.
