Crow Wing County Landfill, it’s anything but a dump
When you hear the word ‘landfill’ what comes to mind? Do you think of piles of garbage or a mile-high heap of waste? Many of us think that. The Crow Wing County landfill, however, is benefiting from smart technology that might make you think twice about your local landfill. A mountain of trash may be a slight exaggeration, but up until the late 1960s, landfills in America had few regulations or systems in place to break down trash. This is why you might find decades-old papers and other items in near perfect condition.
“Education is key.” Doug Morris, the County’s Solid Waste Coordinator, says it best in the simplest of terms. Morris explains that there is always a smarter, more beneficial, and efficient way to do something. “We’re led to believe that the trash business is a dirty game with seemingly no positive outcomes in sight; the water is bound to become contaminated and the air is filling with pollutants as we speak.” Morris knows firsthand that’s it’s just the opposite. “Many can’t believe what a positive difference we’re making at the Landfill. There are great new innovations to help reduce pollutants and save on the pocketbook.”
