Problem Materials

By MN State Statute, certain items are banned from entering into the landfills (Sanitary and Demolition). To assist County residents, we have created programs to address problem materials at the Solid Waste Disposal site.

Appliances or white goods are large items defined by MN State Statute as refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, heat pumps, furnace garbage disposal, clothes washers and dryers, ranges, and stoves, hot water heaters, conventional and microwave ovens, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, trash compactors, and air conditioners.
