Clearwater County Recycling Canisters

Acceptable and Non-acceptable items:

Each site has two canisters that are for co-mingled recyclables. This means all recyclables can be mixed and deposited in either canister.

Recyclables collected in Clearwater County are transferred to the Polk County Resource Recovery Facility in Fosston where they are processed through the Material Recovery Facility (MRF).

The current acceptable material types can be found here.

 Some things to be aware of:

  • Household garbage is strictly prohibited
  • Fiber products, specifically cardboard boxes, must be flattened to conserve space in the canister
  • No scrap metals
  • Only plastics described in above chart are acceptable
    Remember:  When it comes to plastics, if in doubt, throw it out!

If you have a question on an acceptable or non-acceptable item, please contact Clearwater County Environmental Services at 218.694.6183 or email Daniel Hecht.
