Yard Waste Disposal

 

One of the most frequently asked questions received at City Hall relates to the disposal of yard waste. Depending on the type of debris, there are several disposal options.

If you have a garden, leaves and grass clippings can be composted in your backyard. This is a great way to enrich the soil in your flower or vegetable garden. There are many articles on how to make different types of compost recipes for amending the soil.

If you have the means to your haul yard waste, the City of Belle Plaine operates a composting site at 22311 Union Trail. Hours of operation are from dawn to dusk, until the first snowfall. Leaves and grass clippings are accepted – no brush or tree branches and bags are not to be left on site. If you have soil or dirt to dispose of, call Public Works at 952-873-6742. The site is monitored with security cameras and violators may be prosecuted.

All household waste haulers are required to take yard waste. According to MN State Statute 115A.551 Recycling., yard waste is considered recycling.  As part of the licensing requirements for refuse haulers to operate within Belle Plaine, City Code (313.03 COMPOST COLLECTION) requires waste haulers to provide the collection of compost items at a fair and reasonable price. Check with your refuse hauler for the specific requirements. Some haulers require a subscription for compost removal or utilize an on-call service.
