Permits & Licenses



Our department provides a comprehensive solid waste management system for all outside of Duluth and surrounding townships.  These are related to the safe removal of garbage and the opportunities to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Garbage Haulers require licensure to safely remove and promote recycling while county residents have a responsibility to safely remove hazards from their homes.

For your convenience, we present the latest documents from our central document library. You can search and find the latest permitting and licensure information from our Environmental Services Board.
