County seeks resident input on trash and recycling plan

Dakota County would like to hear from residents about proposed trash and recycling strategies. ​Dakota County is currently revising its County Solid Waste Master Plan. The revised Master Plan will guide proper waste management within Dakota County through the next two decades.
 
Strategies include ways to keep waste out of the landfill, meet state mandates to recycle 75 percent of waste generated in the county, and align with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's Metropolitan Solid Waste Management Policy Plan.
 
Residents are encouraged to provide input on critical questions through an online survey that is open through May 31, 2017. Input will guide the development of solid waste and recycling programs and policies that will affect residents, businesses, public and private organizations and waste haulers.
 
Please take the survey by visiting www.dakotacounty.us and searching waste master plan. Choose the survey called Resident Survey.
