Dakota County is currently revising its 2012-2030 County Solid Waste Master Plan. The revised Master Plan will guide proper waste management within Dakota County for 2017-2037, and include strategies to divert waste from the landfill and comply with state mandates and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Policy Plan.
Your voice matters
You and everyone in Dakota County make daily decisions that may produce waste, which is why you should be involved in this process. The Solid Waste Master Plan revisions will impact residents, businesses, haulers and waste facilities. The County’s promise is to work with all stakeholders to ensure that concerns and aspirations are reflected in the strategies developed and provide feedback on how stakeholder input influenced the decisions.
First round of stakeholder engagement complete
Input from all stakeholders will be used to draft strategies for the Solid Waste Master Plan. Thank you to all the individuals, businesses, organizations, haulers, facilities, municipalities and school districts for their input. Compilations and analyses will be posted on the Project Overview & Updates page in the next couple of weeks.
Give more feedback in spring 2017
Watch for surveys in spring 2017 and opportunities to offer feedback on draft strategies. All stakeholders will have more opportunities to provide feedback on the draft strategies this spring.
Dakota County is using the County’s Planning Commission as the advisory committee to periodically review and provide advisory recommendations throughout the Master Plan revision. For more information, please refer to the Planning Commission’s meeting materials and minutes.
