Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling
Yard Waste: You may place yard waste, prepared to collection guidelines, out each week on your garbage day. Minnesota State law prohibits disposing yard waste with garbage and requires the use of compostable bags for collection of yard waste. Visit our Yard Waste webpage for more information.
