Curbside windrows of leaves and yard waste will be collected in April, weather permitting. City residents may otherwise drop off grass clippings, leaves, plants, brush, branches, limbs (up to 4” in diameter), wood chips, sawdust, holiday trees, stumps (clean) and clean wood (not painted or treated) at the MRD compost site, 5211 CTH Q, seasonally from April 1 through November 30.
Please see our Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Policy (rev. 2014) for a complete description of rules and alternative options, and check the City’s Leaves and Garden Waste web page for weekly progress updates.
