Minnesota spends more than $200 million a year hauling off waste to the many dumps around the state. And while more and more initiatives are created to improve recycling rates, there is still a great need for landfills. That’s good news for you, as it means there’s likely a dump close-by ready to process your trash materials.

You’ll find landfills, transfer stations, and dumps in locations such as Minneapolis, Fergus Falls, Truman, Maple Grove, Virginia, St Cloud, Luverne, Ivanhoe, and many more. And while some are closing, some are also expanding.

Trash accepted at these locations includes yard waste, construction rubble, household materials, electronics, tires, car parts, and more. If you have something that’s toxic, please call them beforehand to see if they can process it safely.

Just like a vast portion of the dumps in Texas, most of the ones in Michigan are owned and operated by local counties, giving them the name of a municipal dump. If you choose to dump here and are a resident of the county, you may be given discounted fees.

However, if you choose to offload your trash at a dump that’s privately owned and operated, similar to many of the locations in California, expect fees to be slightly higher as they usually operated on a for-profit business model.

Most dumps will accept generic trash like yard waste, scrap metals, paper, plastics, glassware, car parts, household goods, and more. If you have something that’s potentially hazardous, please give them a call beforehand to double check they can accept your items.

Generally speaking, you will be expected to pay a fee wherever you dump your trash. These fees help the organization to safely dispose of whatever material you’re dumping.
