Recycling & Compost Facility Now Operating Under Normal Business Hours

A message from Bill Stephens, Wright County Solid Waste Administrator

The Wright County Compost & Recycling Facility is operating again at its regular hours – Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and the second Saturday of the month from 8 a.m. to noon. Due to COVID-19 concerns, a self-service drop-off system has been implemented where people will enter the open hanger at the facility and place their items in the proper signed locations. Staff will be available on site to answer questions and help with determining where to place items.

To help maintain a safe and easy experience, people should presort their Household Hazardous Waste into the separate categories of latex paints, oil-based paints, aerosols, household cleaners, pesticides, solvents, used oil and filters. Again, staff will be available on site if there are questions about unique items.

Electronics, household appliances, used tires and fluorescent bulbs are still being accepted, but fees for any items requiring a fee will need to be paid with a check or cash for the exact amount due. No change for cash payments will be available.

Sorted curbside recyclables can also be brought in for recycling and can placed in the proper collection bins. Appointments are required to ensure the safest and quickest visit. Appointments can be made on the county website under the "Make an Appointment" tab.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we continue to adapt to these new operational practices.
