Trash Talk (Virtual)

An in-depth look at the unique services provided by Olmsted County Environmental services for recycling, hazardous waste, compost, & more!

About this event

Do you have questions about what you can put in your recycling cart? Or are you wondering what to do with that pile of junk taking up space in your garage? Whether it’s household garbage, an old washing machine, or a can of paint, Olmsted County’s Integrated Solid Waste Management System provides a Proper Place for Your Waste. This presentation will give you an in-depth look at the unique services provided by the:

  • Olmsted County Recycling Center Plus
  • Hazardous Waste Facility
  • Yard Waste Compost Site
  • Waste-to-Energy Facility
  • Kalmar Landfill.

Time will be set aside to discuss items that should and should NOT be placed in your curbside garbage & recycling containers, as well as what happens to the materials after they are collected. Proper waste management helps us all to become better stewards of our environment!
