Yard Waste

St. Croix County does NOT have a compost site where residents can drop-off leaves, brush and grass clippings.

Consider at-home disposal options like composting and mulching. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has further information about setting up your own backyard composting project.

Otherwise here are some options for disposing of these materials.
