Dakota County is planning a new regional household hazardous waste and recycling drop-off facility in Lakeville. The Recycling Zone Plus is a partnership with Scott County to provide additional services to residents in both counties.
Plans for the new Recycling Zone Plus facility are in the design phase. The facility is expected to open in 2025. The Recycling Zone Plus will collect similar materials as the existing
Recycling Zone in Eagan.
Recycling Zone in Eagan has been in operation for more than 20 years. Residents drop off paints, pesticides, automotive chemicals, household cleaners, fluorescent light bulbs, batteries and small electronics for proper management and disposal.
Facility staff sort, pack, weigh, and store materials on-site until they are shipped to disposal or recycling facilities. The Recycling Zone has reached capacity, with resident participation increasing 33 percent in the last 10 years. The existing Recycling Zone will remain open after the new facility opens.
