Yard Waste

From May through October, the City provides a dumpster for residents to dispose of their yard waste.  An announcement of when the dumpster is available will be printed in the City’s newsletter.  

Acceptable yard waste items are: 

Garden waste, grass clippings, leaves, pine cones, needles, soft-bodied green plants, weeds, sod (residential quantities), evergreen boughs, shrub trimmings, acorns, and branches up to 1” in diameter.

All materials must be debagged and placed loose into the dumpster.  Please unload your yard waste and take your bags or containers home.  All material must be placed inside of the dumpster.

Anoka County has two compost sites available to its residents as well: Bunker Hills Compost Site in Coon Rapids and Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Compost Site in Lino Lakes.

For more information on fees, maps, hours of operation and examples of acceptable materials, go to the Anoka County Compost site's website or call Anoka County Recycling & Resource Solutions  at 763-324-3400.
