Interested in signing up for yard waste services?
It’s that time of year when the leaves are falling and yard waste grows. Partial, first-season yard waste subscription service is available through November 30 (weather permitting); subscribers will be billed at a reduced rate of $50.75 for their partial-year subscription. The reduced rate for partial subscription is only available to new clients or those who moved after yard waste season began. The following year(s) will be billed at the annual rate of $81.09 unless yard waste is canceled by the household.
Residents may also pay $4.08 per bag for on-call yard waste removal services. For on-call service, visit the Finance Department at Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road, to purchase stickers. Residents must adhere one sticker to each on-call bag. To schedule an on-call collection, contact the billing office at least 48 hours prior to your collection day.
Weather permitting, full-season yard waste collection runs from April 15 to November 30. If there is significant snowfall before the end of November or in the spring, yard waste collection will stop at that time. The collection is weekly and includes all garden waste, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, soft garden materials, shrub and tree waste, pruning and wood chips. Remember, twigs and branches must be approximately three feet or less in length and three inches or less in diameter. Place them in bags, containers or on the ground tied in bundles. Bags and bundles should not be heavier than 40 pounds.
