As the COVID-19 situation remains, the Rice County Recycling Center continues to operate in a modified process for self-haulers on an appointment basis only. This option will only be available for RICE COUNTY RESIDENTS and/or PROPERTY OWNERS.
NO OUT OF COUNTY WASTE WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Remember you must have an appointment and prepay for all fee items online before arriving at the Landfill and Recycling Center.
If you are wishing to drop off Household Hazardous Waste or Yard Waste, you do not need an appointment.
Single Sort Residential Recycling
Rice County has a single-sort recycling program. County residents can contract with local haulers for their recycling or can bring it to the Solid Waste Facility free of charge during normal business hours. Some items can be recycled for a fee.
There’s A Proper Place for Your Waste.
Rice County brings you Waste Wizard to assist you with determining how and where to dispose of or recycle your waste. If you live on a farm, in a cabin on the lake, a house, an apartment, or anywhere within Rice County, check Waste Wizard to find out where to properly dispose of your items.
When electronic waste - things like TVs and computers - are put into the landfill, harmful chemicals and heavy metals can get into our water supply and air.
As a result, Minnesota state law requires proper disposal of these items. The Rice County Solid Waste Facility will take these items, in most cases for a fee. Many businesses also offer related recycling programs, often for free.
