The City of Elk River will no longer be able to offer curbside organics recycling due to the closure of Great River Energy’s Trash-to-Energy facility. In the past, organics collected in the Blue Bags were hand sorted at the facility and taken to a commercial composting facility. We will now be offering a free, voluntary drop-off program!
Collect food waste and other items listed below at home in Blue Bags and then bring them to one of the drop-off facilities below:
|Elk River City Hall||Elk River Compost Site|
|13065 Orono Parkways||19000 Proctor Road NW|
|Weekdays 8:00 - 4:30 p.m. (Front Desk)||5:30 a.m. – 10:00 p.m.|
|Dumpster accessible anytime||Free to Elk River residents with a compost card|
Please be aware these dumpsters are for organics recycling only. Both sites are monitored; please do not leave items other than your organics waste. Dumpsters are clearly labeled Organics Only.
