Solid Waste Facility/landfill

Contactless payment and appointment system

Rice County residents and property owners are encouraged to use this pre-pay system if they wish to self-haul their items to the facility.  This system reduces wait times at the facility, while allowing a contactless payment method. It also allows self-haulers to remain in their vehicle except when disposing of their items into the appropriate container/area. 

Access the system at Online payments/scheduling.

Anyone needing assistance with pre-pay online system, wishing to use a different form of payment or who has questions, should email r[email protected] or call 507-332-6833.

Only Rice County residents/property owners may dispose of waste at the Solid Waste facility. The attendant will verify load with proof of payment. Credit cards will be accepted at the gate and scale, but note that may increase wait times.

A licensed hauler is recommended for your waste disposal needs. Rice County has a list of licensed haulers that serve the area. 


The Rice County Solid Waste Facility accepts landfill material from both licensed haulers and self-haulers.

Businesses interested in becoming one of the county's licensed haulers should contact 507-332-6833.
