Spring business electronics event set at Crow Wing County Landfill

The event is 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, at the Crow Wing County Landfill site.

Recycling operations in Crow Wing County involve numerous players: private haulers, cities, townships, the county and the state. State law mandates recycling, and the county must meet goals outlining how much material should be diverted from the landfill.

BRAINERD โ€” The Crow Wing County Land Services Department will conduct a business electronics collection event 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Thursday, May 18, at the Crow Wing County Landfill site.

This is an opportunity for businesses to dispose of any old electronics. Businesses that would like to be included on the countyโ€™s electronics notification list, contact the county and provide the best email address to send these notifications.

Items accepted include

Computer equipment โ€” CPUs, CD/DVD roms, monitors, memory, networking, printers, scanners and tape driver.

Other equipment โ€” circuit boards, integrated circuits, precious metal scrap, wire and cable and motor generators.


Specialized equipment โ€” Duplication/copying, banking, car code, communication, hospital/medical, telephone and test/lab.

Billing for businesses will be done through the landfill office. This fee is due the day of the event or within 30 days of receipt of 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 their 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.

Government agencies 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.

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 โ€” videos, photos, podcasts and social media โ€” 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.
