Steele County Recycling Program

Environmental Services manages the Residential Curbside and Drop Off Recycling programs of Steele County.

Steele County made significant changes to its residential recycling program during the fall of 2012 when urban residents received new, larger carts to hold recyclables, rural recycling drop sites all switched to using large metal containers that can hold many more materials and recyclers can mix all materials together for Single or No-Sort recycling. Recyclers are able to recycle even more materials with this new program as well.

New blue 64 gallon recycling carts with yellow lids and wheels are now used at  homes in Owatonna, Blooming Prairie, Ellendale (including Thompson Oaks), Medford and Lazy “U” Mobile Home Park.
