Minneapolis residents have one final chance to get rid of yard waste now that regular collection has ended. A special one-time yard waste collection will occur Dec. 7-9. Properly prepared yard waste that is placed curbside by 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7 will be collected by yard waste crews over the three-day period.

As yard waste crews will not follow typical collection schedules for the service, the city is stressing that residents should have their yard waste out by 6 a.m. on Wednesday.

Properly prepare yard waste includes branches put into bundles of less than three feet and leaves in bags that weigh less than 40 pounds.
