Crow Wing County Household Hazardous Waste Site Now Open
Crow Wing County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility opened for the season on Wednesday, April 24th, 2019 at the Crow Wing County Landfill. This is a free service for all Crow Wing County residents.
The HHW facility will be open the second Wednesday and second Saturday of each month from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., May through September. In October HHW will be open the first Wednesday and first Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
“The HHW site provides a location to properly dispose of old paint cans, cleaners, and other chemicals. It’s rid the garage or basement shelves of these left-over products,” stated Ryan Simonson, Crow Wing County Environmental Services Supervisor. “This free service keeps these chemicals out of our environment, protecting our water resources.”
The HHW Facility accepts hazardous household waste items such as:
▪ latex & oil paints
▪ stains and aerosols
▪ automotive products
▪ household cleaners
▪ yard and garden pesticides
▪ rechargeable batteries
▪ mercury containing devices (such as thermometers and switches)
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. It is important to note that all loads coming to the County Landfill must be covered to ensure our roadways are not littered with debris.
