Yard Waste Disposal Options

Arrange with Hauler to Collect Yard Waste

For an additional fee, residents may arrange for yard waste collection through their hauler. The yard waste collection season runs from April 15 to November 30, and is picked up the same day as your trash.

Contact your hauler directly to arrange for this service.

Ramsey County Yard Waste Drop Off Sites

Leaves, brush, lawn clippings, may be taken to a Ramsey County Compost Site free of charge. Many sites also accept compostable items like food scraps, non-recyclable paper products, coffee grounds, and more.

Also, consider using your yard waste to start your own backyard composting. Details on getting started available by clicking here.

For more information, please visit the Yard Waste Collection page of the Ramsey County website.

Did You Know...?

  • That depositing any yard waste such as leaves, trash, dirt, and grass clippings, from the boulevard or private property into the street is prohibited.
  • If your yard waste is picked up by a hauler or recycler, state law now says you must use a reusable container or special bag that can be composted. Plastic bags are not considered reusable containers and are banned.
