Crow Wing County to hold final household hazardous waste collection for 2013

The Crow Wing County Land Services Department’s Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Program will hold its final organized collection events for the 2013 season from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, and Saturday, Oct. 12, at the County Landfill.

This is a free service for all Crow Wing County residents. This will be the last opportunity of the year to dispose of unwanted chemicals, cleaning products, pesticides, herbicides, paints, stains and automotive chemicals.

Upon arriving at the county landfill site, residents must stop at the landfill office. The attendant will discuss the items to be disposed and provide directions to where the HHW facility is located at the site.

All loads coming to the county landfill must be covered to ensure roadways are not littered with debris.

During the winter months (November through April), HHW will only be taken for emergency situations. An example of this is residents who are moving or an estate that must dispose of hazardous materials that cannot wait until HHW programs open in May 2014.

To schedule an appointment, contact the Land Services Department located at the Crow Wing County Landfill at 218-824-1290.
