Updated information about changes to yard waste collection from Minneapolis’ Department of Solid Waste and Recycling.
All bagged yard waste must be in compostable bags. Acceptable bags include Kraft (paper) bags and compostable plastic bags. Compostable plastic bags should clearly state that they meet ASTM D6400 standards for composting and be marked as compostable. Biodegradable or degradable bags do not meet state law. Watch for the logos below to find bags that meet standards required under law.
