Buckthorn Pickup and Collection Options

If you have buckthorn in your yard, City Public Works staff will pick it up from your curb beginning May 25, or you can take it the Ramsey County Yard Waste collection site off of New Brighton Road at 3530 Hudson Avenue. Buckthorn is an invasive species that negatively impacts local plant life diversity. 

To schedule a pick up, please call City Hall at 651-792-7800, or fill out the online form for City staff to pick it up from your curb. 

The Public Works Department will pick up buckthorn from residential homes on Fridays from the end of May through the end of October. Residents are required to place the buckthorn in neat, manageable piles along the street curb. Please note that only buckthorn will be accepted. Pick up procedures must be followed.

Alternatively, you can bring the buckthorn piles to the Ramsey County Yard Waste Collection site, located off of New Brighton Road at 3530 Hudson Avenue. The site is open Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
Saturday: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sunday: 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.

For more information, please contact Jeff Frid at 651-792-7852. For information on what buckthorn is and why it is a problem, please view the City website.
