Question: "Would you throw away your car if it still had value?" Of course not. Yet only than 56% of Lyon County residents recycle. We coordinate residential "curbside" recycling, and use of recycling sheds/containers are provided for residents only. Commercial recycling is not provided through the County, however we encourage your business to recycle, and are glad to help.
In addition to curbside collections, disposal of special materials (mattresses, car seats, electronic waste, etc.) is available to businesses and resident alike. Don't see it on the list? Call to ask if it can be recycled.

LANDFILL - 2025 - 200th Ave. Lynd, MN   Maplink

Some items do have to be disposed of at the landfill, but we attempt to divert as much waste from the landfill as possible to delay expensive construction additions. Lyon County serves 8 Counties with our Regional Landfill. The landfill has a barrier to protect the groundwater, pumps and systems to manage rain water and landfill gases, and daily practices to keep litter in control. Residents and businesses in the eight-County region may dispose of construction & demolition waste, regular garbage, and large garbage items. The landfill is also the collection point for other recyclable materials including metal, appliances, electronic waste, and tires.
