Used Electronic Equipment Disposal
A special concern to MPCA is the disposal of electronic equipment. In 2003, Minnesota required that cathode-ray tubes (TV’s and Monitors) may not be placed in municipal solid waste after July 1, 2005. To ensure proper management of these items, the Crow Wing County Solid Waste Office will host two (2) one day collection event in 2019 – the third Wednesday of May (15th) and Wednesday, September 18th for government/public entities. These events will be held at the Crow Wing County Landfill site.
The purpose of this letter is to notify all local businesses/government agencies that they have this disposal option available to them for their used electronic equipment they need to dispose of. The HHW Facility will be open for this specific waste stream from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on these two dates. Upon arriving at the County Landfill Site, businesses must stop at the Landfill Office. The attendant will discuss the items to be disposed and provide directions to where the HHW Facility is located at the site. It is important to note that all loads coming to the County Landfill must be covered to ensure our roadways are not littered with debris.
The County will utilize Dynamic Recycling. The overall cost is $0.30 per pound for processing and billing fee for businesses. Billing for business/commercial will be accomplished through the Landfill Office. Credit cards or checks will be accepted. This fee is due the day of the event or within 30 days of receipt of invoice for those business that already have a charge account at the Landfill. If a business wishes to establish a charge account please contact the Landfill Office at 218-828-4392 prior to the event. During the event the landfill attendant will direct businesses after their vehicle has been weighed to the collection site. Equipment to be disposed will be unloaded and their vehicle will be directed back to the Landfill Office to be reweighed at the scale. At this time businesses will be provided with a bill for payment.
Government agencies that are eligible for the State Contract rates will be handled differently. They will be billed directly by Dynamic Recycling. You will also need to stop at the Landfill Office where you will receive your weight of the material brought in. Dynamic Recycling will verify the equipment and invoice your company within two weeks of the drop-off, so no payment is required during the event for State rates.
