Dakota County is revising its Solid Waste Master Plan to reach the goal of recycling 75 percent of waste by 2030. State law requires Twin Cities metropolitan counties to revise master plans with strategies to comply with state mandates and meet recycling goals and objectives in the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Metropolitan Area Solid Waste Policy Plan.
