With melting snow and warmer weather comes the desire to get outside and clean up our property. Sticks, branches, leaves and garden waste can be taken to the City compost site at 214 14th Street NE beginning on Saturday, April 16th at 8:00 am. Piles of these items cannot be burned within the City limits. City residents can dump yard waste at no charge. Items accepted include leaves, branches, grass clippings, garden residue in compost piles, and brush. The site is open on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday, and the hours of operation can be found by clicking below. The compost site is not open on Holidays.
