When you have more yard waste than your cart will hold or you are on a “on call only” service, please remember to use the paper compostable bags. These mix in well with the compost process and decompose making the final compost product clean, plus the composting facilities don’t accept plastic bags and since January 1, 2010, residents in the Twin Cities area who bag their yard and organic waste are required to put their waste out for pickup in compostable bags; either paper (kraft) bags or compostable plastic bags. This affects residents in the following counties: Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington.
REMEMBER our yard waste collection options:
Don’t forget to keep your trash and recyclables separate, so we don’t contaminate the yard waste recycling facilities, who wants garbage and recyclables in their compost dirt?
