In 2018, the Carver County Board of Commissioners voted to discontinue yard waste collection at the Carver County Environmental Center starting in January 2019. Chanhassen residents will need to find other options for disposal of their yard waste. The city will not be picking up any storm damaged materials from residences. The City of Chanhassen has the following options for homeowners to dispose of yard waste:
