Recycling & Waste

Stumps

Legal Considerations

It is illegal to dispose of tree stumps and other yard waste in the trash.

Due to the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) quarantine, Ramsey County residents cannot transport ash trees, including ash limbs, branches, logs and untreated ash lumber with the bark attached, outside Ramsey and Hennepin counties.

Recycle

Tree stumps and roots are NOT accepted at yard waste collection sites. Scroll down to "commercial yard waste sites"  for service. You can also grind up the stump and use it for mulch around your landscaping if it is mostly free of rock and dirt.
