Buckthorn brush cannot be bagged, boxed or bundled. If it is, it must be removed from the container before being left at the dump.
When at the dump site, please observe social distancing and other health guidelines in place.
Before digging out buckthorn roots, call 811or visit GopherStateOneCall.org a few days ahead to allow time for public utilities to be marked. Treat any cut buckthorn stumps to halt regrowth and ensure killing the plant.
Another free buckthorn dump will be held in spring 2021.
October 17, 2020, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM @ Bike along the Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail. Participants should meet at the trailhead at 70th Street and Amundson Avenue. The group will head east toward the Edina Promenade and then head back.
Through the election in November, the “Walk With the Mayor” has been replaced with “Walk With a Council Member.” This month, Council Member Ron Anderson will put a special twist on the event, hosting a bike ride instead of a walk. “Bike with a Council Member” with Ron Anderson is scheduled for 10-11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 17, on the Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail. Participants should meet at the trailhead at 70th Street and Amundson Avenue. The group will head east toward the Edina Promenade and then head back.
Taking part in the event gives community members a chance to voice concerns, share opinions and thoughts as well as just talk with Anderson while getting to know the city a little bit better. No prior registration is required to attend the walk; simply show up at the designated meeting time to bike and talk with Anderson.
Participants should dress in layers and a mask and maintain a six-foot distance from one another when necessary.
