County Ordinance 110 Solid Waste Management includes recycling and other waste management requirements for residents, commercial entities, municipalities and the waste industry. The requirements are designed to reduce waste going to landfills, improve the quality of materials recycled and make progress toward the state's goal to recycle 75 percent of waste by 2030.
The requirements were created as part of the county's Solid Waste Management Plan.
The ordinance identifies a list of recyclable materials that all haulers serving Dakota County customers must accept and all generators must place into carts or dumpsters to be collected. A list is also provided if organics (food scraps) are being collected.
