Recycling bins

Dakota County’s draft Solid Waste Master Plan is available for review through December 1. Residents, businesses and other organizations located in Dakota County are encouraged to provide comments.


The draft Solid Waste Master Plan will guide proper waste management within Dakota County through the next two decades, including growing recycling programs and developing policies that will affect residents, businesses, public and private organizations and waste haulers. 

Proposed strategies in the draft Solid Waste Master Plan include ways to 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.

An open house on the draft Solid Waste Master Plan will be held on Saturday, November 18 from 10 a.m.–noon at the Burnhaven Library located at 1101 County Road 42 West in Burnsville.

Review the draft plan and submit comments by visiting www.dakotacounty.us.
