Until further notice, the two Household Hazardous Waste drop off sites located at the Regional Landfill in Virginia and at the Hibbing Transfer Station are temporarily closed. Citizens are asked to keep any household hazardous waste items – until the sites re-open.
UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:
ST. LOUIS COUNTY SOLID WASTE FACILITIES WILL ONLY ACCEPT WASTE FROM WITHIN THE ST. LOUIS COUNTY SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT AREA.
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), for the duration of Governor Walz’s Emergency Executive Orders. 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.”
