Drop-off facilities temporarily closed

Effective March 17, Hennepin County is closing our drop-off facilities for household hazardous waste and recycling through April 6, 2020. We have not taken this decision lightly and understand the hardship this creates for our residents.

Residents are encouraged to safely store their household hazardous waste until we are able to accept items again. Safe storage tips can be found by viewing our household hazardous waste page.
