Additional Notes

  • Please have leaves ready for pick-up by 7:00 am on the Monday morning corresponding to your scheduled week. Leaves will be picked up during the entire week so some leaves may not be removed until Friday of that week.
  • Leaves should be placed in a windrow on the boulevard, within 5’ of the back of the curb. It is the resident’s responsibility to ensure leaf piles are accessible. Inaccessible leaf piles will NOT be picked up.
  • Any bags, sticks, rocks, trash, or other non-conforming items will NOT be picked up.
  • The City offers a Yard Waste Recycling site for city residents: located at 1880 100th Street. City residents can drop off brush, leaves, grass clippings and personal yard waste.
  • Contact City Hall at 507-238-9461 with questions.

When it comes to water quality – Don’t Blow It.

Leaves and grass clippings blown onto the street can be carried into the storm sewers, ending up in area lakes. This has the potential to cause algae bloom.
Help keep our lakes clean and your grass green by keeping clippings and leaves off the street.
