McLeod County Residents Invited to Provide Input
Survey Responses Will Help to Shape the County’s Required Solid Waste Plan
May 31, 2023: McLeod County has engaged Mid-Minnesota Development Commission (MMDC) to assist with the development of the next McLeod County Solid Waste Plan. This plan will describe county objectives and potential strategies for the management of solid waste, including recyclable materials. While it is required by Minnesota statute (Minnesota’s Waste Management Act), the updated McLeod County Solid Waste Plan will also provide the documentation needed to be competitive for any applicable solid waste management-related grants and other funding.
For this plan to be effective, significant public input is required! All residents are therefore asked to participate in the McLeod County Waste Survey, which can be found at:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/McLeodCountyRecycles. Paper copies may also be provided, by request. A second survey will be made available to those who visit a solid waste facility within McLeod County (e.g., McLeod County Environmental Services facility, recycling and waste disposal site, etc.).
Those with questions about McLeod County’s Solid Waste Plan or the planning process are encouraged to reach out to MMDC Regional Planner Ben Dolan at [email protected] or (320) 235-8504.
