Demolition Material

Ideally, customers will bring demolition material directly to the privately owned Demolition Landfill. Demo debris collected at the Clay County Landfill is hauled by the county to Clay Demolition Debris Landfill for disposal. 

Clay Demolition Debris Landfill

The Clay Demolition Debris Landfill, privately owned and operated, is the only county-permitted demolition landfill. It is located in Section 3 of Riverton Township, 6 miles west of Hawley and 1/4 mile north off U.S. Highway 10.

The permitted landfill area covers 17.8 acres, with a 250,000-cubic-yard capacity, and receives about 400 loads of debris annually. The demolition landfill's conditional use permit allows the disposal of inert building and other structural waste materials and rubble. The landfill is Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) approved and meets State statutes and rules.
