Yard waste bag pick-up service is done each Thursday, mid-April through late November. The deadline each week is 2 p.m. on Wednesday. If you miss this deadline you will be scheduled for the following Thursday.
Hopkins refuse customers can also drop off their brush and yard waste for free at the drop off site, open mid-spring through November.
The easiest and best way to handle grass clippings is to leave them on the lawn. Set your mower to a height of two to three inches. Mow frequently enough so that no more than one-third of the grass blade is removed at any mowing. This may mean that you will mow more frequently, but you will spend less time doing it. Not only will you save time mowing and bagging and save money by not buying yard waste bags and having them picked up, you will also have healthier grass.
