Wadena County is working with Otter Tail County to expand the Film Plastic Recycling Program into a regional program with covering Otter Tail, Todd, and Wadena counties. Continuation and expansion of the program was made possible by a recycling grant from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.
Farms or other collection sites that already have a Revolution Plastics dumpster from the program that started in 2016 are allowed to keep the dumpster, and Otter Tail County will arrange for the dumpsters to be serviced. Collection is free for the first 12 months of the grant period, although Wadena County Solid Waste is evaluating what an appropriate fee for the service after the initial collection period.
Or - Drop off at the Wadena County Transfer Station during Business Hours.
Please place ONLY the following materials into your dumpster:
Bunker Cover that does not contain nylon mesh or reinforcements (skrim)
Boat Film/Wrap (cords and ropes cut off)
Bale Wrap is no longer accepted as of 5/1/2022
Mesh or Scrim
Ropes or cords
Consumer film plastic (shopping bags)
For more information or to inquire about starting film plastic collection at your farm or facility, please contact the program coordinator Zach Fjestad, Assistant Director of Otter Tail County Solid Waste. Contact
