Recycling At Solid Waste Disposal Site
The Crow Wing County Solid Waste Disposal Site provides two 20-yard recycling containers for recyclable material generated by the residents of Crow Wing County. These recycling containers, "bins", are commingle, meaning all recycling material are mixed together. When the bins are full, they are hauled to a recycling center in the Minneapolis where the material is sorted.  

Residents are asked to flatten cardboard boxes, plastic containers, aluminum cans and metal cans in order to utilize as much space as possible in the bins.
