St. Louis County Extends Winter Hrs For Solid Waste Sites
In order to provide for the health and safety of it's workers and the general public during the COVID-19 pandemic response, St. Louis County has extended its winter hours until May 17; the move comes as the usual switch to summer hours was set to begin in April.
The extension of the winter schedule does not affect operating hours at the landfill or transfer stations. Click here to see the complete schedule.
The county's two Household Hazardous Waste drop off sites in Virginia and Hibbing remain closed until further notice. Residents are asked to keep any household hazardous waste items - such as paint, household cleaners, rechargeable batteries, and fluorescent bulbs, among other things - until the sites re-open, so that the items can be disposed of safely. People needing to make an emergency drop off of household hazardous waste can call 218-741-8831 to try and make an appointment. Staff will accommodate emergency drop offs as schedules permit.
Additionally, St. Louis County suggests that those needing to utilize the drop-off sites should call ahead; schedules, hours, and logistics continue to change due to COVID-19. The number for the Environmental Service Hotline is 218-749-9703.
