Know your yard waste bag limit

Authored on
Bloomington Briefing Published August 31, 2021

Earlier this year, a limit of 20 additional bags or bundles of yard waste was set for weekly yard waste service. Haulers will not pick up extra yard waste bags. If you have more than 20 bags, save the additional bags and have them collected the following week. 

Yard waste season continues through Friday, November 26, weather permitting. If significant snowfall occurs before the end of November, yard waste collection may end at that time. 

Accepted materials include garden waste, grass clippings, leaves, weeds, soft garden materials, shrub and tree waste, and pruning. Twigs and branches must be three feet or less in length and three inches or less in diameter. Bundles or bags cannot be heavier than 40 pounds. 

Dirt, sod, rocks and wood chips are not accepted. 

Residents with yard waste service can request one additional yard waste cart for a $37.32 fee. It’s acceptable to set up to 20 bags of yard waste out in addition to your cart(s) per week. To sign up for yard waste subscription, contact Utility Billing at or 952-563-8726. 

Residents can pay per bag for on-call service by purchasing yard waste stickers for $4.26 each. Call 952-563-8757 to request stickers to be mailed to you.
