Lawn & Garden

Putting yard or tree waste in the garbage is illegal in Minnesota, but caring for your lawn and garden doesn't have to produce expensive waste.

Turn clippings and leaves into a free material to improve soil through composting.
Fertilizers with pesticides are a less safe, more expensive approach. But if you use these products, see our use and disposal tips.

Leftover pesticides? Not garbage-friendly! Find out where your county accepts them.
