The city of Minneapolis has roughly 800 fewer downed trees invading city streets, and crews all over the metro are working to clear debris in your area.

North Minneapolis drop-off

Metro Wood Recycling
33rd Ave and 2nd Street
Open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mon-Fri, 8 a.m. to noon Sat.

Ft. Snelling drop-off

Minnehaha Avenue and Bloomington Road
7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mon-Fri, 8 a.m. to noon Sat.

These sites will discontinue accepting public tree debris at noon on Saturday, June 29. This service is for property owners clearing their property of tree debris after storm damage only-it is not for contractors doing work for property owners or for regular tree pruning. It is only for tree debris, not construction or other materials.

Smaller branches

Residents with small branches and pieces of brush can use the regular weekly Solid Waste & Recycling yard waste collection service to have them picked up. Crews will pick up bundles of brush and small branches that are less than three inches in diameter and less than three feet long. Here's how to get them ready for pickup:

-Bundle brush and small branches securely with twine or rope. Do not use wire.

- Each bundle must be less than 3 feet long.

- Each bundle must weigh less than 40 pounds.

Make sure to have the bundles of yard waste at your alley or curb line, next to the garbage cart, by 6 a.m. on your garbage day.


City crews will pick-up tree debris from residents. Call 651-632-5129.
