Otter Tail County Solid Waste Fee Schedule

Otter Tail County Solid Waste operates six transfer stations and the City of Fergus Falls operates a landfill. For more information about MN landfills visit Minnesota Pollution Control Agency.

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) can either be brought to a solid waste transfer station, or collected by a licensed waste hauler. After disposal, MSW in Otter Tail County is primarily brought to the Perham Resource Recovery Facility in Perham, a waste-to-energy facility managed by the Prairie Lakes Municipal Solid Waste Authority.

Reducing Waste

By reducing, reusing and recycling we can have less garbage and use fewer natural resources. We can save money by reducing the amount of garbage we throw away. For more information about waste reduction visit the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Use the recycling options in Otter Tail County to reduce waste and save on disposal costs. Curbside recycling is available in Fergus Falls and Perham.

Open Burning

The Otter Tail County Solid Waste Ordinance prohibits the burning of solid waste, including paper and cardboard. This also applies to burning waste in recreational campfires, fireplaces and wood stoves. Burning of household waste is a misdemeanor and is punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and/or 90 days in jail. If you’re burning garbage, you’re making poison.
