Ramsey County Solid Waste Management Plan

The Ramsey County Solid Waste Management Plan is a policy-based community-guiding document for managing trash and recycling in ways that support healthy people, a healthy economy and a healthy environment.

The plan guides how we reduce waste, increase recycling and avoid landfilling, and outlines how we work with residents, businesses and partners to meet state and county goals. It is written with a 20-year vision and updated every six years. 

Join our advisory committee

Ramsey County is updating the plan for 2024. We are currently recruiting community members to join our Waste Reduction Advisory Committee to provide feedback and ideas on how trash and recycling are managed in our county.

  • Learn more about this committee. If you are interested in joining, complete the application by at least Dec. 1, 2023 (deadline has been extended). Scroll down the page to find the Waste Reduction Advisory Committee.
