Ramsey County residents can recycle their organic waste for FREE at Ramsey County Yard Waste sites. This includes food scraps, non-recyclable paper products, coffee grounds, dryer lint and more! The Arden Hills site is located at 3530 Hudson Avenue. For additional details about this program please visit Ramsey County's Organics Recycling webpage.
How to Use the Organics Recycling Drop-off:
Pick up free compostable bags at one of the seven Ramsey County yard waste sites or at Arden Hills City Hall.
Fill the compostable bags with food waste (including meat, dairy and bones), and non-recyclable paper (including paper plates, napkins and pizza boxes). You can also include compostable cups, plates, utensils, bags, etc. Pizza boxes and other cardboard and paper food packaging do not need to be bagged.
Bring your organics to a Ramsey County Yard Waste site during regular hours.
Put the organics bag in the designated container. Look for signage.
When you need more compostable bags, ask a yard waste monitor. They're free!
