Yard waste is a subscription service in the garbage and recycling program. There are two service options for collection.
1. Weekly collection during yard waste season
Weather permitting, full-season yard waste collection runs Monday of the second week in April through Friday of the last week of November. If there is significant snowfall before the end of November, yard waste collection will end at that time.
- If you sign up for yard waste between August 1st to Friday of the last week in November, you will be billed at a reduced rate, for the partial season of yard waste collection. The reduced rate for partial subscription is only available to new customers or those who moved after yard waste season began.
- The following year(s) will be billed at the annual full-season rate unless yard waste is terminated by the household.
Subscription to this service includes delivery of one yard waste cart (if desired) as well as ability to place up to 20 bags of yard waste out each week for collection. A second yard waste cart can be delivered for an additional fee upon request.
To subscribe to seasonal yard waste season, contact Utility Billing at 952.563-8726 or email UtilityBilling@bloomingtonmn.gov.
2. On-call yard waste collection
Residents may also pay per bag for yard waste on-call services. On-call yard waste stickers may be purchased in person at Finance Department Front Desk or by calling 952-563-8757. Residents must adhere one sticker to each on-call bag of yard waste. To schedule an on-call collection, contact Utility Billing at least 48 hours prior to your collection day. The hauler will collect yard waste materials on your garbage day.
