The Crow Wing County Landfill will move to its summer hours of operation starting Thursday, April 1.

The landfill will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. During these expanded hours the county landfill is open to accept household garbage, fiberglass boats, mattresses, furniture, mobile homes and other items for proper disposal.

Due to COVID-19 and to ensure everyone’s safety, people bringing material to the landfill for disposal must remain in their vehicles. Landfill staff will come out of the main office to assist customers if needed.

Landfill customers must stop at the landfill office to speak with the attendant to discuss the items to be disposed of, pay any fees and receive directions to the proper drop-off locations. All loads coming to the county landfill must be covered. Uncovered loads are subject to a $5 fee.

The following items may be properly disposed of in the landfill for free or a nominal fee depending upon the items:
