Dakota County is currently revising its 2012-2030 Solid Waste Master Plan to properly manage trash, recyclables, food waste, and hazardous materials for 2017-2037. Dakota Valley Recycling is a part of this important effort that affects everyone in the County including residents, businesses, schools, organizations, haulers, and waste facilities.
First Round Complete
Over 500 County residents and businesses provided input on key issues from November 2016 through February 2017. Take a look at the Round 1 results, which will shape the County’s draft waste management strategies. Curious about the project timeline? Check out the project overview here.
Your Voice Matters
Later this spring, watch for Round 2 opportunities to provide your feedback on those draft strategies, and get more information on the Master Plan process on the County Solid Waste Master Plan website. Dakota County is using the County's Planning Commission as the advisory committee to periodically review recommendations. For more information refer to the Planning Commission's meeting minutes.
