How do I dispose of yard waste?
Minnesota law forbids the landfilling of yard waste such as leaves, grass clippings and brush. Minnesotans are encouraged to either compost yard waste at home or bring it to a community compost site.

Rice County residents can bring their yard waste to any of the community compost sites listed below or to the Solid Waste facility free of charge. For more information visit the
