About yard waste service
Yard waste collection began the week of April 11, 2022 and ended the week of November 29, 2022. Yard waste collection will resume in Spring 2023.
If you have yard waste that you'd like to get rid of before collection begins again next spring, find drop-off options on Hennepin County's Yard and Tree Waste Disposal web page.
Yard waste is picked up every week on your garbage pickup day during yard waste season.
Yard waste collection is included in the base fee for your Solid Waste & Recycling service. There's no extra charge for the collection of properly prepared yard waste. If you do not use the City's collection service, contact your hauler for information.
By state law, it's illegal to throw yard waste in the garbage. It is also illegal to use a traditional plastic bag for yard waste picked up at your home.
