Residents can dispose of grass, leaves and compostable or organic yard waste year-round free of charge.
Residents may also dispose of brush at the brush and compost site at the Waste Campus, located at 1873 Bench Street for a charge. However, these charges are waived for residents during the 2020 fall clean-up event from September 19 through November 7, 2020. During this time, Red Wing residents may dispose of brush and shrub trimmings free of charge.
The hours for the Bench Street compost and yard waste site are: Tuesday and Thursday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. Sunday Closed
Special bags are not necessary to dispose of materials at this site, as all materials must be emptied from the containers in which they are brought. After November 7, 2020, regular rates for disposal of brush will apply.
For more information, contact the Waste Campus at 651.385.3658.
Please note: residents may opt to rent a roll-off dumpster for their spring yard waste at a reduced rate from September 19 through November 7, 2020. Roll-off dumpsters rented at the reduced rate may only be used for brush, trees, flowers, grass, leaves, and other compostable yard waste. Contact the Waste Campus for pricing and availability.
