Your yard waste container must have a sign which reads “Compost” or “Yard waste” on at least one of several containers. Waste Management no longer provides yard waste stickers. Make your own yard waste sign for your container or pick up a yard waste sticker at no charge at Osterhus Printing, 4500 West Broadway Avenue, between 9 am to 8 pm Monday–Friday and Saturdays 10 am to 5:30 pm
Yard waste should be bagged in compostable bags weighing less than 30 pounds, or in lidded Rubbermaid‐type containers weighing less than 40 pounds with a yeard waste label. Waste Management does not collect bags or containers of dirt. If disposing of sod, please remember to remove the dirt.
the City of Robbinsdale is planning a boulevard tree planting this fall. We have had good response so far, but we are still looking for requests from residents who have a treeless section of right‐of‐way and would be willing to water a newly planted tree. A total of 22 separate varieties are available. If you would like a tree planted, please email Stephan Papiz, City Forester or call 763‐531‐1273. No warranty is provided on the trees and a request for a tree will require approval by City staff.
