Solid Waste Operations PSA/Update


March 27, 2020

Due to COVID-19 there are some things to consider when it comes to Solid Waste:


Effective 28 March, 2020 the Demo Landfill will be closed except for times listed below:

New Hours:

Open Friday, April 3, (10:00 – 2:00)

Open Friday, April 10, (10:00 – 2:00)

I am assuming after the 10th we will be open Tuesday-Saturday (7:45 to 3:45)

If you have a 3 or more Roll-Off boxes that need to get emptied we can support this by request from 10 to 2 Monday, Wednesday, Thursday as well by calling Jared at 218-333-8187 the day prior that you need support.

Bemidji and Blackduck Transfer Stations:

No change in Hours/Operations

Expect delays (Social Distancing is in Effect):

-Please stay in your car

-please bag all your recyclables during this Pandemic to limit exposure to Solid Waste Workers.

-Please follow directions from the Solid Waste Employees

-These measures are in place to protect you, others, and our employees.

Remote Transfer Sites:

No change in Hours/Operations

Please wait your turn and practice social distancing

What can you do to help?

-If you only have one bag of garbage, consider waiting until you have more to limit your visits to the Transfer Station during this Stay at Home Executive Order.

-Be patient and respectful we are doing our best to provide the best “Safe” service that we can.

-If you are at risk or sick stay at home, ask someone to haul your garbage to a transfer site.

Thank You,
