Dakota County wants to hear from residents about new trash and recycling strategies. In advance of proposing policy changes, residents are encouraged to comment on critical questions related to implementation plans through an online survey available through April 15. This input will guide the progress of solid waste and recycling policies and programs.
The revised 2018–2038 Dakota County Solid Waste Master Plan was adopted in September 2018 and expands on traditional approaches to improve waste management. The new master plan contains educational, financial and regulatory strategies to reduce waste going to landfills and to make progress toward the state's goal for the county to recycle 75 percent of waste by 2030.
Take the resident survey.
