EXTRA EXTRA… Properly bag your yard waste

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:

  • Seasonal Collection: this service is best for those who generate large and consistent volumes of yard waste weekly throughout the year and comes with a 65 gallon container to store your yard waste plus we will take up to 25 additional bags. BEST VALUE!
  • On-call Collection: this is best for customers who have minimal yard waste throughout the year. Simply call our offices or go online to schedule each time you require a pick up. It’s best to call 24 hours prior to your scheduled collection day so we can get your compost routed to the right truck in your area. 

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?
