Anoka County has 2 compost sites available to its residents: Bunker Hills Compost Site in Coon Rapids and Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Compost Site in Lino Lakes. The sites provide a good option when you have large quantities of leaves or grass clippings that you are unable to compost or leave on your lawn at home. Both sites are open April - November (weather permitting).
Compost Site Rules
You must show proof of residency to use these sites and there is a fee. When you drop off yard waste at one of the compost sites, you will need to unload it and take your bags or containers back home with you.
Tree waste may be loose or bundled. You may also take free finished unscreened compost from the sites when it is available. Remember to bring your own shovel and containers.
For more information on fees, maps, hours of operation and examples of acceptable materials at both compost sites, go to the Anoka County Compost site's website or call Anoka County Recycling & Resource Solutions at 763-323-5730.
For finished compost availability call 763-767-7964.
