The City of Big Lake, Big Lake Township, and Orrock Township jointly host an annual Recycling Day Event. The event is held on the third Saturday each May from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at: Big Lake Township Maintenance Facility 20150 166th Street Big Lake, MN 55309
The event is organized by a private vendor. Metro Appliance Recycling is a recycling business located in Otsego, Minnesota and they have substantial experience in running these types of recycling events. Any questions, please call Metro Appliance Recycling at 763-241-8787 or Town of Big Lake at 763-263-8111.
The intent of this annual event is to offer a centralized location for citizens to bring recyclable materials. In past years, some citizens were allowed to bring "garbage" to the collection site. Any costs for the collection of garbage at this event will be the responsibility of the person bringing the items. Also listed is a link for rates for Great River Energy's plant located in Elk River, Minnesota. This is a great place to bring your trash - turn your trash into electricity!
