YARD WASTE CURBSIDE COLLECTION

2019 SPRING YARD WASTE COLLECTION                                                                                               Yard Waste Drop Off Site

Branches/Brush/Tree Trimmings Curbside Collection:  The City of Saint Peter will be collecting branches, brush, tree trimmings at curbside the week of May 6th. Staff will begin collection at 7:00 A.M. Monday, May 6th. 

Tips to facilitate and speed up the collection process:
1. Please place materials on your yard, parallel and adjacent to the curb (within six-feet (6’) of the curb line).
2. Please do not put brush on the street.
3. Brush and tree trimmings should be cut to lengths no longer than six feet.
4. Please help us serve you better by placing brush away from curbies, light poles, trees, posts, mailboxes, utility boxes/pedestals, etc.
5. Please refrain from parking near (within 50’) or in front of the yard waste until pick-up is complete.

Please note: it does take more than one day to pick up but we only go through an area once; therefore, if your yard waste is not out by 7:00 A.M. Monday, May 6th, it will not be picked up.

Should you miss the collection, brush can be taken to the City’s yard waste drop-off site.

Please note: There will not be a collection for “leaves and grass clippings” but they can be taken to the yard waste drop-off site at 1128 Swift Street. Do not put in with the brush.

Drop-off Site Open 24 Hours A Day, 7 Days A Week - The brush and soft yard waste drop-off sites located at 1128 Swift Street, (southwest intersection of St. Julien and Swift Streets) with access off Swift Street are open year around for your convenience in dropping off brush and soft yard waste. Brush and tree trimmings must be cut shorter than 6 feet. Separate bunker now provided for dropping off fill (rocks, dirt, etc.).

Woodchips and Compost Available To Citizens: FREE woodchips and sifted compost material, when available, will be at the site for Saint Peter residents to pick up. While the material is free, please bring your own shovels, bags or containers to load and transport.

This service is provided and funded by the Environmental Service Fee on your utility bill. Please call the Department of Public Works at 934-0670 if you have any questions.
