Safely dispose of your household hazardous waste and electronics at one-day drop-off events held in Farmington and Burnsville.


Drop-offs events for all Dakota County residents are scheduled for:

• Saturday, Sept. 9, 9 a.m.–1 p.m., Farmington Maintenance Facility, 19650 Municipal Drive, Farmington

• Saturday, Sept. 30, 9 a.m.–2 p.m., Burnsville Maintenance Facility, 13713 Frontier Court, Burnsville


Items that will be accepted at no cost from Dakota County residents include paint, fluorescent bulbs, fertilizers, pesticides, batteries, solvents, gasoline and oil. TVs and monitors have a $10 fee, but all other electronics like printers, laptops, hard drives and vacuums will be collected for free. No medicine, sharps, yard, business or farm waste will be accepted.

Dakota County partners with cities on multiple hazardous waste drop-off collections throughout the year to make it convenient for residents to properly dispose of household wastes that don’t belong in the trash. If you can’t make a collection, stop by The Recycling Zone in Eagan for convenient and year-round household hazardous waste and electronics recycling.
