Beginning April 5, the Crow Wing County Landfill will expand its hours of operation to 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be open Monday through Saturday weekly.

During these expanded hours the county landfill is open to accept household garbage, fiberglass boats, mattresses, furniture, mobile homes and other items for proper disposal.

The county provides convenient access for proper disposal of unused or unneeded materials at the landfill, said Doug Morris, solid waste coordinator, in a news release.

Customers utilizing the landfill must stop at the landfill office and speak with the attendant to discuss the items to be disposed, collect any fees and receive directions to the proper drop-off locations. All loads coming to the county landfill must be covered and uncovered loads are subject to a $5 fee.

The following items can be properly disposed in the landfill for free or a nominal fee depending upon the items:

• Free recycling of lead-acid car/marine batteries.

• Free recycling of used oil filters, motor oil and anti-freeze is available at the Landfill and several drop-off locations within the county. Visit the web page for drop-off locations: and search “oil.”
