Solid Waste & Recycling

Pine County has operated under the same Solid Waste Ordinance since 1990.  In 2015, Pine County Commissioners took a leap into the future and amended the ordinance to include the ability to assess a solid waste management fee on parcels throughout Pine County in order to expand the County's solid waste functions. At the same times as amending the plan, the Resolution 2015-33 setting a $6 solid waste management fee beginning in 2016 on only improved taxable parcels in the county.  In 2016, these funds will be used to building and operate a household hazardous waste facility in Pine City.
