Waste Wizard is Here! This new tool  will assist residents with how and/or where to dispose of or recycle many differerent items in Dodge County.  

The DODGE COUNTY RENOVATION REUSE (DCRR) is open by appointment only. Give us a call to set up a time if you have good reusable building materials or household items that can be put to good use by someone else.  Call 507-635-6114 or 507-635-6273 to set up an appointment - there is a $5 per vehicle drop off fee.
Please see the Renovation ReUse web page for acceptable and not acceptable items. We will be having our next sale on MAY 18th, 2024 from 8 a.m. - Noon! Watch for advertising on the website/ facebook/ DCI and flyers! We are located at 62770 240th Ave Kasson.   

The Recycling Blue Bins have been returned. However, the bins behind the Recycling Center building will still be removed from Saturday at Noon until Monday morning until further notice.  Please remember to flatten your boxes and put all the packaging from in the boxes in your garbage.   Illegal dumping is a misdemeanor and punishable by citation and a fine.  Please dispose of items properly and if you have any questions, please call us at 507-635-6273. We do not want to have to remove them permanently so please help us keep the recycling free of contamination.  Ask the Waste Wizard above where things go if you don't know. Thank you!

THANK YOU!  Thank you to all who contacted your legislators in support of the new Transfer Station building at the Dodge County Transfer Station. Dodge County received funding in the bonding bill that passed in May of 2023. We appreciate your support. We are looking forward to the new building being constructed to help us serve Dodge County's waste needs!
