The Crow Wing County Land Services Department will conduct a business electronics collection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18, at the Crow Wing County Landfill site.

This is an opportunity for businesses to dispose of any old electronics. Items accepted include:

  • Computer components.
  • Circuit boards.
  • Integrated circuits.
  • Precious metal scrap.
  • Wire and cable.
  • Motor generators.
  • Copy machines.
  • Banking electronics.
  • Bar code readers.
  • Communication equipment.
  • Hospital and medical equipment.
  • Telephone equipment.
  • Test or lab equipment.

Loose batteries will not be not accepted at the business event.

Billing for business/commercial will be accomplished through the landfill office. Credit cards or checks will be accepted. This fee is due the day of the event or within 30 days of receipt of invoice for those business that already have a charge account at the landfill.

If a business wishes to establish a charge account, contact the landfill office at 218-828-4392 before the event.

During the event the landfill attendant will direct businesses, after their vehicle has been weighed, to the collection site. Equipment to be disposed of will be unloaded and their vehicle will be directed back to the landfill office to be reweighed at the scale. At this time businesses will be provided with a bill for payment.

The cost to dispose of business electronics is 30 cents per pound. Local businesses that plan to participate are encouraged to contact the Land Services-Solid Waste Office at 218-824-1290 so paperwork may be completed to expedite the wait time.

Government agencies that are eligible for the state contract rates will be handled differently. They will be billed directly by Dynamic Recycling. You will also need to stop at the landfill office and receive your weight of the material brought in. Dynamic Recycling will verify the equipment and invoice your company within two weeks of the drop-off, so no payment is required during the event.
