Residents can bring their food waste and non-recyclable paper to a Ramsey County Yard Waste Site. For more information about what is accepted and locations see Ramsey County’s Yard waste site. Roseville also has a Food Scraps (organics recycling) drop off at the City’s Leaf Recycling Center. For more information, visit www.cityofroseville.com/FoodScraps. Free compost bags can be picked up at the Leaf Recycling Center, Roseville City Hall, and at the Ramsey county Yard Waste Site.
Home composting is an easy way to turn organic waste into a rich soil amendment. All you need is a compost bin and a pitch fork, which you can find at most lawn and garden stores. See how to compost and find answers to the most common composting questions.
If your yard waste is picked up by a hauler or recycler, state law now says you must use a reusable container or special bag that can be composted. Plastic bags are not considered reusable containers and are banned. Many home improvement stores now offer these compostable yard waste bags.
