Anoka County Compost Sites Open for Extended Hours Beginning April 1

Anoka County Compost Sites

November 30, 2018, weather permitting. The sites are located in Bunker Hills Regional Park in Coon Rapids and Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Regional Park in Lino Lakes.

Leaves, Grass and Non-Woody Yard Waste

Yard waste includes debagged grass clippings, leaves, garden waste, weeds, softbodied green plant materials, straw, acorns, pine cones and needles. No charge to drop off up to four cubic yards. (Approximately eight lawn bags equal one yard.) A $5.00 fee will be assessed for each additional four cubic yards.

Tree Waste

Tree waste includes brush, evergreen boughs, logs and stumps. Tree waste may be loose or bundled. Fees vary based on the amount and the diameter of the materials. The more compact the load the lower the fee.


Organics include all food scraps, most non-recyclable and uncoated food-soiled paper and BPI (Biodegradable Products Institute) certified compostable products. FREE to county residents. For additional details visit

Please keep yard waste, tree waste and organics separate as they are unloaded by residents in different areas of each site. Free unscreened compost is available at both sites. Please remember to bring your own shovel and containers with you.
