  • Brush
  • Pruning

  • Tree limbs (not larger than 4" in diameter)

Compostable Bag Law

Effective 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 bags or compostable plastic bags.  This law applies to residents in Anoka, Carver, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington counties.
