….. that you need a permit from DNR to transport lake weeds to a compost site?
Here’s what you do………..
You will need a DNR permit (See below).
Paynesville Compost Site
The Paynesville Compost Site is located two miles northeast of Paynesville on County Road 33. The site is open to both city and township of Paynesville citizens. Finished compost is also available for pick-up.
The site is open daily, 8am to dusk from April through mid-November.
Accepted items include yard waste (such as grass clippings), leaves, twigs, branches (no tree stumps), and garden waste. Finished compost is also available for pick-up.
For details, see the Paynesville MN compost site web page.
You will also need a permit to transfer “weeds” from the lake. The attached document “ais-auth-form-plants.pdf” (above) that you print out, fill in, and carry with you will cover that requirement.
