Compostable bags are required for yard waste pickup
Effective January 1, 2010, customers who bag their yard waste must use compostable bags. A new law forbids the use of conventional plastic bags for yard trimmings collected in the Twin Cities area. Approved bags must be either paper or biodegradable, compostable plastic bags that meet ASTM D6400 specifications.
The new law affects residents in the counties of Anoka, Carver, Hennepin (excluding the City of Minneapolis), Ramsey, Scott, and Washington.
Your yard waste must be bagged in a compostable bag, or Aspen will not be allowed to pick it up.
The new compostable bags are clear, green tinted, or white. They are made from biodegradable plastic that will break down in a composting site (regular plastic yard bags do not). The bags can be purchased at home improvement, grocery and retail stores. Look for bags that meet the ASTM Standard Specification for Compostable Plastics (D6400).
Aspen also allows you to rent a wheeled Yard Waste Cart. Call 612-884-8008 for details.
Manufacturers and brands of certified compostable plastic bags can be seen at this website.
