A new transfer station planned for Beltrami County is just one of five facilities scheduled for construction and expansion in Greater Minnesota.
The five facility project has been organized by a five county Solid Waste Advisory Board which includes Beltrami, Clearwater, Polk, Mahnomen, Norman and will soon add Hubbard. Once completed, Polk County Environmental Services Administrator Jon Steiner said the new and updated facilities will be beneficial to all six counties involved.
Along with the new 40,000 square-foot transfer station in Bemidji for Beltrami County, the project includes new transfer stations in Park Rapids for Hubbard County and in Crookston for Polk County. Additionally, work will be done to expand the Polk County Resource Recovery Facility in Fosston, and construct a composting site in Polk County.
