Solid Waste Management

The Crookston Transfer Station and Fosston Incinerator are again open to the public and accepting wastes from self-hauling.  The only change to the Crookston transfer station facility is that recycling is only accepted during normal business hours (Monday 7am-7pm) and (Tuesday-Friday 7am-5:30pm).  Residents entering any portion of the facility must wear a face covering to protect our staff and other visitors from COVID-19.  We appreciate your cooperation during this difficult time and we aim to continue to provide our residents with all our services. 

The product exchange services are now open for HHW products available for residents to pickup at our facility.  Only one household may use the product exchange room at a time, no mixed households can be in this room as this room does not allow space for social distancing.
