BRAINERD — The Crow Wing County Land Services Department will conduct a business electronics collection event 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at the Crow Wing County Landfill.

This is an opportunity for businesses to dispose of any old electronics.

Items accepted include:

Computer equipment such as: CPUs, CD/DVD-Roms, monitors, memory, networking, printers, scanners, and tape drives. Other equipment like circuit boards, integrated circuits, precious metal scrap, wire and cable, and motor generators will also be accepted. Other specialized equipment accepted includes those used for duplication/copying, banking, bar code, communication, hospital/medical, telephone and test/lab.

But businesses should note loose batteries are not accepted.


Billing for businesses will be accomplished through the landfill office. This fee is due the day of the event or within 30 days of receipt of an invoice for those businesses that already have a charge account at the landfill. If a business wishes to establish a charge account, contact the landfill office at 218-828-4392 prior to the event. During the event, the landfill attendant will direct businesses, after their vehicle has been weighed, to the collection site.

Equipment to be disposed of will be unloaded and the vehicle will be directed back to the landfill office to be reweighed at the scale. At this time, businesses will be provided with a bill for payment.

Those who would like to be included on the business electronics notification list should contact the land office and provide the best email address to send these notifications.

Government agencies that are eligible for the state contract rates will be handled differently. They will be billed directly by Dynamic Recycling. They will also need to stop at the landfill office to receive the weight of the material delivered. Dynamic Recycling will verify the materials and invoice the agency within two weeks of the drop-off, so no payment is required during the event.

For more information, contact the Land Services Solid Waste Office at 218-824-1010 or for more information, visit Crow Wing County’s website at and search for “Solid Waste.” The landfill address is 15728 State Highway 210, Brainerd.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
