YW - Reusable Container

Yard waste collection ends next week

Your regular garbage day during the week of November 12 is your last chance to have leaves, brush, and other yard materials picked up by Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling.

Yard waste must be in compostable bags – paper (Kraft) or compostable bioplastic – or unbagged in a reusable container 26-32 inches high, no more than 26 inches wide, with sturdy handles. Reusable containers are lifted and emptied by hand; they must be easily managed. For questions about yard waste collection, call 612-673-2917 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. or visit the City’s Yard Waste collection page here. Image courtesy of the City of Minneapolis
