[ARCHIVED] Spring cleaning tips for a vibrant, healthy, and attractive Community!

While spring cleaning this year, please consider these tips that will help you make your yard a more pleasant place to enjoy the warm weather this summer.

Residents of Apple Valley and Dakota County have numerous options available for disposal of yard waste and unwanted household items.  Yard waste can be disposed of by transporting the material numerous yard waste collection sites located in Dakota County, or throughout your licensed hauler.  Unwanted items including house hold appliances, furniture, construction debris, etc. can be dropped off at numerous collections sites, or arranged for special pick-up through your trash hauler.  For a complete list of resources and disposal options follow the link below. 

Another common option is the use of a “Bagster”.  Please be aware that these are viewed as trash accumulation and a violation of city code when placed outside on lawn areas outside and filled with refuse.  City ordinance does not allow for placement of these on boulevard areas within the right of way at the curb except for collection and never on the street or sidewalk. 

Snow, ice, and cold winter weather can hinder adequate clean-up of lawn areas after our pets during the winter months.  This spring, when the snow and ice melt completely, please remember to clean all lawn and boulevard areas of pet waste thoroughly.  This is a great way to make your yard a more pleasant place and to be a great neighbor! 

If you have any questions or to report any concerns in your neighborhood please contact Apple Valley Code Enforcement by phone at 952.953.2570; or by email at
