Organics Drop-off

The City of Lakeville partnered with Dakota County to establish an organics drop-off point in Lakeville. The materials collected are used in compost. The drop-off point is located on the west side of the Lakeville Water Treatment Facility at 18400 Ipava Avenue. Access to the drop-off requires registration with Dakota County. Visit Dakota County's website for more information.

Using data gathered in December 2019:

  • There are 697 households registered and participating in the Lakeville organics drop-off.
  • The Lakeville site is bringing in approximately 2,303 pounds of organics per week.
  • If all households are participating, this results in an average of 3.3 pounds of organics per household per week being dropped off.
