Site description

General Waste and Recycling facility in Keewatin, Minnesota in Itasca County is a privately owned landfill and an unlined demolition debris disposal cell built and designed to accept mining and industrial waste from the northern Minnesota area. This waste management area predominantly accepts waste generated from the local iron and taconite mining industries but does accept CCR material. General Waste & Recycling LLC operates a singular CCR disposal landfill with a second lined CCR unit currently under construction. The landfill, as well as the other unit once it is constructed, is regulated under the CCR rule.
