Household Hazardous Waste Policy Statement
Policy NBR: 2005-01
Adopted: July 20, 2005

Policy Statement
The Chisago County Environmental Services regularly receives requests for disposal of household hazardous waste (HHW) from residents outside of our service area. According to State of Minnesota Rules, Chisago County may accept waste even if Chisago County does not have an agreement with the requestor's county. It is the intent of the board to approve such requests when, in the opinion of the Chisago County Board of Commissioners, the best interests of the county are being served.

Policy Guidelines
In the event of any question about application of this policy, decisions of the County Board shall be final. Decisions of the board on individual cases will not necessarily limit the board's actions on future cases.

It is the intent of the Chisago County Board of Commissioners to allow a non-contracted county resident to bring HHW to the Chisago County Household Hazardous Waste Facility located at 39649 Grand Avenue in North Branch.

It is the policy of Chisago County that, prior to the approval and acceptance of HHW that the non-contracted county resident would need to:
  • Call the HHW Facility at 651-213-8920 to make an appointment.
  • Notify at the time of scheduling an appointment the amount of waste to be disposed.
  • Bring a check payable to Chisago County to cover the disposal cost. Minimum charge is $70.
