Waste designation is the term used in Minnesota law that allows counties to enact an ordinance that requires all or a portion of solid waste to be delivered to a designated waste management facility. Sometimes called “flow control,” waste designation can be put into place after a thorough planning process that is approved by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). Designation relates to what happens to waste after it is collected – it does not affect who collects trash, or when it is collected.
Pope/Douglas Solid Waste Management’s Joint Waste Designation Plan has been approved by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
There are many stages in adhering to Statutory requirements relating to designating solid waste. Current timeline below.
