On April 22, 2020, the St. Louis County Solid Waste & Septic Subcommittee unanimously approved a motion to stop accepting solid waste from residents living outside the St. Louis County Solid Waste Management Area (SWMA), with the exception of the Northwoods Transfer Station (Ely).  St. Louis County Environmental Services will continue to provide essential solid waste services to citizens within the St. Louis County SWMA.  The motion becomes effective immediately.”
