2022 Yard Waste Carts & Stickers

1200x627 YW Hard Work

Curbside yard waste collection for twigs and branches, weeds, and lawn clippings runs from April 8th to November 26th in Windsor Heights. There are a variety of ways to easily get your yard waste collected curbside.

Option 1: bags and stickers

Yard waste can be placed in Compost it! bags or store-brand bags with a green Compost It! sticker attached. Bags and stickers are sold at many local grocery, home improvement, and convenience stores.

Option 2: cart service

If you are setting out several Compost It! bags each week, you might find a Compost It! cart to be a better option. The 96-gallon cart can hold equivalent to three yard waste bags.

The Compost It! cart is run as a subscription service. If you’re a new customer, you pay a one-time fee for the cart itself plus the annual sticker. Once you have a Compost It! cart, you just pay to renew your sticker each year.

To request a cart or renew your sticker, visit

New carts with the sticker are delivered within 10 business days, and renewed stickers are mailed by early March so you can replace it on the lid of your existing cart before yard waste season officially begins!

Yard waste season begins April 8

Curbside yard waste collection resumes April 8. For collection, you should place yard waste at the curb with stickers, or in bags or carts, on your regular collection day. Make sure you have it out before 6 AM, as some haulers get started before the sun rises!
