Dunn County Solid Waste & Recycling reminds all residents that 2018 Solid Waste Permits must be displayed in their vehicle by Saturday, Feb. 3. If the permit is not displayed, residents will be charged $3 per bag or barrel of household trash. This is to help protect the municipalities who pay a per capita fee for their residents to participate in the Dunn County Solid Waste Program.
Solid waste permits are only needed when disposing of household trash — defined as standard items that are disposed of in an indoor household trash receptacle on a regularly occurring basis. Items such as carpeting, flooring, cabinetry, dry wall, toilets and lumber fall into the category of construction and demolition wastes and incur a fee.
Residents who live in non-participating municipalities, such as the city of Menomonie, towns of Hay River, Sand Creek, Stanton and Eau Galle, or the village of Knapp, may either purchase a permit for $80 a year (pro-rated throughout the year); or pay the $3 fee for each bag or barrel of household trash.
Those who have not yet received a 2018 Solid Waste Permit or are interested in purchasing one can call 715-232-4017 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
