[ARCHIVED] Drop off yard waste for free

ORF collection

Residents of Scott County can drop off yard waste for free every Sunday from September 3 - October 29 at the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community’s Organics Recycling Facility (ORF).

Yard waste can be dropped off between 8 AM - 2 PM at the ORF, which is located at 1905 Mystic Lake Drive South in Shakopee. Scott County residents must bring their driver’s license or state ID card for proof of residency.

In 2016 during the months of April, May, September and October, more than 4,700 Scott County residents dropped off yard waste at the ORF for free. The ORF recycles this waste and turns it into nutrient-rich soil amendments suitable for organic farming, gardening and landscaping.
