Storm Debris Locations Available

If you had trees and large branches fall during the recent storms, you have a few options to get rid of the debris:

Contact your garbage hauler for pricing
The Mulch Store, 4275 Creek View Circle, Minnetrista, 952.446.1056
Carver County Environmental Services, 116 Peavey Circle, Chaska, 952.361.1800

Please contact the sites for hours and pricing.

Diseased Tree Service Available to Residents

If you have an oak, ash or elm tree that you have concerns about, the city has contracted with S&S tree service for free evaluation of the tree. In an effort to keep diseased trees out of the urban forest, city council determined that offering free evaluation of the three trees that are of major concern in the city would be an asset to residents.

To make an appointment for tree evaluation, please call city hall at 952.960.7900. Only appointments made through the city will be covered by this program. If you have a question regarding other tree species, you are encouraged to contact a certified arborist. A list is available at city hall or on the city website under Tree Care.

Free Curbside Organics Service

First-time organics customers are able to get one year of free curbside organics service through a Hennepin County Grant the city received. If you are interested in adding this to your garbage service contact Randy's Environmental Services, 763.972.3335. The first 25 residents will receive the one year of free service. If you are with another garbage hauler, we encourage you to request they start offering service. If you have questions, please contact the city at 952.960.7906.
