Yard Waste & Collection

We collect yard waste in a number of ways.

  • Our yard waste site is open 24/7. It is located at the south end of Blaine St. Please obey the signs that are on site.
  • We collect yard waste curbside in clear plastic bags. Please keep lawn clippings/leaves separate from pine needles.
  • The grass clippings and leaves that are collected are eventually turned into compost that is used as topsoil on our street projects.
  • Brush can be cut to 4’ lengths, bundled and set curbside for collection throughout the year.
  • We offer spring and fall brush cleanup weeks for larger amounts of brush.

    Stay tuned for announcements on the City of Merrill's website and Merrill Foto News for dates.
