Sign-Up

To participate, fill out the Household Organics & Yard Waste Sign Up form online or stop by City Hall during regular business hours.

You will be given a key fob to access the Household Organics & Yard Waste Site.

For City of Jordan Residents:

  • If you use both the household organics and yard waste, you will not be charged if you make at least two drop-offs to the organics recycling per month.
  • If you only use the yard waste site, you will be charged a $5 per month fee for each month you access the site (i.e. if you only make drop-offs in September-November, you will only be charged for those months)

For St. Lawrence and Sand Creek Township Residents:

  • If you only use the household organics recycling, access to the site is free.
  • If you wish to use the yard waste site, you must pay upfront for the season (April-November).

After Signing Up

After you sign up, you will be contacted via email to let you know the key fob is ready. Please check your spam/junk mail inbox and note it may take up to two weeks for the fob to be ready. You can either stop by City Hall to pick up the fob or it can be mailed to you. If you sign up for organics recycling, you will receive a free magnet! Additionally, those who pick up their key fob at City Hall will receive 10 compostable bags to get you started, while supplies last. 

Start Collecting

Use any container to collect organics at your house. You can reuse a coffee canister, ice cream bucket, or yogurt tub or you can buy a kitchen compost bucket online or in stores. Use a BPI certified compostable bag or a paper bag. Minimize odors by freezing your household organics until you can drop them off, or make regular trips to the Household Organics & Yard Waste site. The organics recycling is also available to Jordan restaurants. 

Drop Off

Use your key fob to access the site at 705 Syndicate St, Jordan, MN 55352. Place your household organics in the dumpster or yard waste behind the gates. Then, continue collecting! Pick up more BPI-certified compostable bags at City Hall or most grocery or hardware stores.
