Spring Cleanup

Yard Waste Disposal

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 from April 13 through June 1, 2019. 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:
Monday through Friday
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
7 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Disposal Containers

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 June 1, 2019, regular rates for disposal of brush will apply.

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.
