Be free of hazards

Dakota County residents have two upcoming opportunities to safely dispose of their household hazardous waste and electronics at no cost. The following drop-off events are planned:
  • Saturday, Sept. 12, 9 a.m.–1 p.m., Farmington Maintenance Facility, 19650 Municipal Drive, Farmington
  • Saturday, Oct. 3, 9 a.m.–2 p.m., Burnsville Maintenance Facility, 13713 Frontier Court, Burnsville
Items that will be accepted at no cost from Dakota County residents include: paint, fluorescent bulbs, fertilizers, pesticides, rechargeable batteries, solvents, gasoline, oil, televisions, cellphones, computers, coffee makers, toaster ovens and vacuums. No medicine, sharps, or yard, business, or farm waste will be accepted.
Dakota County partners with its cities on multiple hazardous waste drop-off events throughout the year to make it convenient for residents to properly dispose of household wastes that don't belong in the trash.
