Redwood/Renville Regional Solid Waste Authority (RRRSWA) Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
In response to Redwood and/or Renville County’s policy(ies) regarding limited exposure during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the RRRSWA has implemented measures to help ensure reduced contact between employees and members of the public.
Beginning March 20, 2020, the following services will be altered or suspended until further notice:
1. PRIVATE HAULERS:
- We will not accept private haulers’ garbage at the Redwood/Renville Regional Material Recovery and Transfer Facility (RRRMRF or MRF) in Redwood Falls.
- If you have a need to dispose of personal garbage, please make arrangements with a commercial hauler to get set up with either a dumpster or a curbside garbage cart (depending on where you live…the hauler will be able to advise you).
- A list of licensed commercial haulers for both counties is available on our website.
2. DEMOLITION MATERIAL DISPOSAL:
- The Renville County Demolition Landfill will be closed until further notice.
- If you are a private hauler and have demolition materials to dispose of, please contact a commercial hauler for a roll-off or other container.
- If you are a contractor who regularly delivers demolition material to the landfill, please call the MRF and set up a charge account so you can begin to bring those materials directly to the transfer station in Redwood Falls.
- Both the Redwood and Renville County Household Hazardous Waste Facilities and product exchange rooms will be closed.
- Redwood County appliance/electronics collection was scheduled for April 1 and Renville County was scheduled for April 8. Both of these have been cancelled.
- If you have pre-shredded paper, please make sure it is in sealed plastic bags so it can be placed in the specially marked dumpster/roll-off outside of the MRF Office area during regular business hours.
- If you are a business shredding customer, we want to accommodate you, but need to minimize person-to-person contact. Please call us at least 1 (one) hour before you are ready to bring us a full cart. When you call us, we will provide instructions on cart exchange procedures. (No cart exchanges after 3:30 p.m. M-F)
- If you have large amounts of pre-shredded paper to dispose of, please call us and we will do our best to work with you to provide a drop-off point that is safe for all parties involved.
- If you have personal papers to be shredded, we regret to inform you that at this time, that service will be suspended. If you have a large amount to be shredded (i.e. cleaning out a house due to someone passing on or a moving situation), we can provide you a 65 gallon cart at no charge. Please call with questions.
- Because this situation/pandemic is constantly changing, it is a difficult and trying time for all of us and we ask for your patience and understanding.
- Our procedures and restrictions may change at a frequent pace and we will do our best to keep you up-to-date.
- As always, we invite you to call us with any questions you might have. We will post any changes on our Facebook and webpages, which you can access through either the Redwood or Renville County websites (follow the RRRSWA link on either site).
For more information, contact Jon Mitchell, RRRSWA/RRRMRF Executive Director at 320-523-8002 or 507-637-1800.
