Yard Waste Site

Yard Waste Site

Public Parking SignMake yard clean up a little easier by bringing your compostable yard waste to the City of Victoria's compost collection site.

The City of Victoria is opening the compost collection site on weekends throughout the summer and into the fall. The site will be monitored by a security camera and open to Victoria residents for compostable yard waste only. No non-compostable items allowed. The City of Victoria offers this service to its residents as an easy way to dispose of yard waste since it is illegal in Minnesota to put this type of waste in household garbage.
