Now that the trick-or-treaters have come and gone, what should you do with your decaying jack-o-lanterns? You can put them in your backyard compost bin if you have one or bring them to a Ramsey County yard waste site. There are seven sites in the county, and they are free to Ramsey County residents. For locations and other materials accepted, go to RamseyRecycles.com/yardwaste or call 651-633-EASY (3279), which is answered 24/7.
Remember that leaves, grass clippings, brush, and other plant material cannot be mixed with your trash. Contact your trash hauler about a separate yard waste pick-up service (for a fee) or bring them to a Ramsey County yard waste site for free.
Remember, it is also ILLEGAL to rake your yard leaves into the street... bag them up and take them to the yard waste site.
