Anoka County Compost Site

Anoka County has two compost sites available to its residents.

Tree Waste

Residents may drop off yard and tree waste. A resident may drop off up to four cubic yards for free but each additional four cubic yards will be charged $5. There is a variable fee for tree waste disposal, depending on the amount and size of the material. Tree waste is charged by the cubic yard. The more compact you make your load, the lower the fee.

  • Brush
  • Evergreen Boughs
  • Logs
  • Shrub Trimmings
  • Stumps

Yard Waste

The compost sites are a good option when you have large quantities of leaves or grass clippings that you are unable to compost or leave on your lawn. When you drop off yard waste at one of the compost sites, you will need to unload it and take your bags or containers with you.

Acceptable Materials

  • Yard Waste
  • Acorns      
  • Garden Waste
  • Grass Clippings
  • Leaves
  • Pine Cones and Needles
  • Sod (Residential Quantities)
  • Soft Bodied Green Plants
  • Weeds

All must be debagged.


You may also take free finished, unscreened compost from the sites when it is available. Remember to bring your own shovel and containers. Screened compost and various mulches are available for purchase at the Bunker Hills site only.
