Yard Waste

GarbageMan, A Green Company offers yard waste collection and disposal to residential customers. This service provides property owners and businesses with an affordable and convenient way to dispose of grass, leaves, tree limbs, and other forms of yard waste. All of this organic material is recycled and converted into compost and other fertilizer products. The proper disposal of yard waste helps to divert organic waste from filling our landfills.

Per Minnesota Statue 115A.931, yard waste may not be disposed of with mixed municipal solid waste (household trash). We also require all yard waste outside our approved yard waste container to be within compostable, paper lawn refuse bags. Sticks and twigs may be bundled in twine with each bundle being no longer than 3 feet in length, not exceeding 30 lbs., and containing no branches thicker than 4 inches in diameter. No other bags or materials will be accepted.


We are no longer offering annual service plans for yard waste pickup for new customers. Those who have had the service previously, however, can keep the service for the 2017 season.


You can call us by 12:00 PM the business day before your regular service to schedule a yard waste pickup (Monday customers must call by 12:00 PM on Friday). Because the charges and pickup availability varies with our different routes and franchises, we encourage you to contact us to make arrangements for pickup and scheduling.

  • Additional charges may apply or items may not be picked up if anything but approved biodegradable paper bags or approved GarbageMan containers are used
