Recycling

Question: "Would you throw away your car if it still had value?"

Answer: "Of course not." Yet not everyone in Lyon County recycles, and RECYCLABLES HAVE VALUE!!! The Environmental Department coordinates residential "curbside" recycling, and provides use of recycling sheds/containers are for area residents. Commercial recycling is not provided by 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. 

Landfill

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.

HOURS: 6:00am - 4:00pm M-F

              7:00am - NOON   SAT

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

Camping

Lyon County has two parks with camping; Garvin Park (50 sites & Tent Only Camping), and Twin Lakes (17 sites). Both parks have electrical at each site (except primitive camp at Garvin Park. Even with 60+ site the weekends fill up fast! Here's a few reasons why... Camping is GOOD FOR YOU...

FRESH AIR
After setting up your tent or moving your belongings into your yurt, you take a deep breath and are overwhelmed by a feeling of happiness. This is not only because you are about to embark on a week-long vacation, but because you are surrounded by trees which give off a high-capacity of oxygen. Your brain functions better with this increased level of oxygen and releases serotonin, which makes you feel happy and lowers your stress level. Fresh air has other health benefits, such as improving your blood pressure, aiding digestion, and boosting the immune system. Providing your body with these higher levels of oxygen over a series of days increases the effect of these health benefits.

EXERCISE AND SOCIALIZE
Camping provides a great deal of exercise. You walk to different amenities, swim, play sports, hike, fish, etc. These different exercises burn off a greater amount of calories than an office job would. Exercise activates your cardiovascular system and is beneficial to the health of your heart and lungs. In a society where hard work is idealized, and more time is spent at your place of employment rather than at home, camping provides time away from daily stresses and allows time for you and your family to socialize without distractions. According to The American Journal of Public Health, socializing can delay memory problems and extend your lifespan

SUNSHINE
Whether you are sleeping outdoors or taking refuge in an RV, just spending down time outside has a huge impact on your health. The sun is not only good for that tan, but it also provides our bodies with Vitamin D. This is essential to our well-being because Vitamin D allows our body to absorb calcium and phosphorous which strengthens our bones and teeth.

REDUCES STRESS & DECREASES ANXIETY / DEPRESSION
Being outdoors and camping allows you to remove yourself from the stresses of your career. Sitting by the pool or in front of a dim campfire are great ways to relieve stress. Although many campsites offer wifi, it is important to allow yourself time away from technology and connectedness (the need to be connected through social media). The decrease in the constant stimulation of technology will encourage a greater psychological and emotional health. Research has shown that green spaces can decrease depression by up to 71%. Camping allows us to break away from the chaos of life and enjoy the simplicity of nature. Clarity can be developed from the solitude of nature.

 

Notice to County Road Ditch Hay Users

Notice to County Road Ditch Hay Users:

 

Lyon County applied the Dow AgroSciences herbicide Milestone to all county right-of-way in the fall of 2017 as a weed control measure.  There are certain label restrictions for use of Milestone-treated grass hay, specifically concerning manure spread on alfalfa or land to be planted with soybeans.  Please contact the Lyon County Highway Department or an agronomy professional for questions regarding label restrictions of this application.

Additional Information

 

The soil residual activity of Milestone herbicide is what provides more than a few days’ worth of weed control. By contrast, 2,4-D controls some weeds that have emerged, but 2,4-D does little to control weed seedlings that emerge days later.

 

In the soil

The active ingredient aminopyralid in Milestone both broadens the spectrum of control and provides soil residual activity to control susceptible weeds that germinate for several weeks after spraying.

Over the season, the active ingredient breaks down and its soil residual activity dissipates. But enough may remain for the next two to three years to damage extremely sensitive crops if Milestone ends up in cropland.  Don’t plant a broadleaf crop until an adequately sensitive field bioassay shows the crop won’t be affected, Dow AgroSciences recommends.

 

In the plant

While the herbicide is still active in the soil, grasses may absorb and store the active ingredient, so it may be present in hay harvested from treated grass for up to 18 months after treatment. Treated grass hay should never be used, sold or given away for mulch or compost. Enough aminopyralid could leach from the hay to damage sensitive broadleaf plants. Likewise, don’t feed treated hay on land to be planted to sensitive crops.

 

Through the animal

When a grazing animal ingests treated grass or grass hay carrying aminopyralid residue, the residue passes through without harm to the animal. But the active ingredient may be present in the manure or urine for three days after consuming the treated forage. For that reason, manure from animals that have consumed grass or hay treated with aminopyralid should be used only on permanent grass

pasture. Don’t spread it on cropland or provide it to others for gardening purposes. Spread the manure on permanent pastures only.
