Where to Recycle

Pick-up Services
Every commercial waste hauler in Dakota County offers recycling collection services in addition to trash. Calling your current hauler is the easiest way to add recycling to your weekly collection. However, it is important that you ask your hauler to provide an assessment of your recycling needs, make specific recommendations, and work with them closely to determine if, and when, you can reduce the size of your trash container. Most haulers are willing to accommodate this request.

Also, a searchable directory of recycling pick-up services is available at Rethink Recycling’s website.

Drop-off Facilities
There are numerous businesses willing to recycle your items. Go to the Rethink Recycling website to look-up recycling facilities by material type and zip code to find the one nearest you.

The Recycling Zone in Dakota County offers a free, convenient location for businesses to drop off traditional recyclables.
