Composting & Yard Waste
Back Yard Composting
Arden Hills encourages back yard composting of kitchen scraps and yard waste. Just ensure your compost bin or pile is located in the rear yard, at least three feet from the rear or side property line.

Compost Bin & Rain Barrel Sale
The City sponsors a compost bin and rain barrel sale once a year in May at the Roseville City Hall. Bins and rain barrels can be purchased at a reduced rate. Check back in the spring for more details about the annual sale.  Purchase a Bin or Barrel

Yard Waste Disposal
  • Through Your Waste Hauler - Check with your individual waste hauler to see if yard waste can be collected at the curb. View our listing of licensed waste haulers for more information.
  • Through the Ramsey County Yard Waste Sites - You can also take your yard waste to one of Ramsey County's seven yard waste sites.

Organics Recycling
Ramsey County residents can recycle their organic waste for FREE at Ramsey County Yard Waste sites. This includes food scraps, non-recyclable paper products, coffee grounds, dryer lint and more! The Arden Hills site is located at 3530 Hudson Avenue. For additional details about this program please visit Ramsey County's Organics Recycling webpage.

You can also include compostable cups, plates, utensils, bags, etc. Pizza boxes and other cardboard and paper food packaging do not need to be bagged.
