Dumps in Minnesota

Hello Community,

We just started performing Initials in Minnesota, we have been taken back by what the dumps are charging for debris, as they are charging per cubic foot versus tonnage. I just wanted to see how any businesses currently working in Minnesota are handling their debris. In order to reduce the cost we are separating the debris from what can be donated which is very time consuming. Any thoughts

You should charge additional monies to offset your dump fees, or you could test the Minnesota DNR by having large fires. If you choose the fires remember the Hillary defense " I did not know that was illegal" - Emails.

My brother and I started a preservation company ourselves, while helping a friend with a trash out, we found out that our 10 ft box truck (or any commercial vehicle), can't dump unless you get a $3000 decal that takes 9-12 months to get.
NJ for the win =\

I've never heard of getting charged by the cubic foot. How much is it to dump 1CF of debris?

Iíve already told you more than I know.

It has to be cubic yards. I won't ask why you didn't investigate how much it would cost to dump debris before signing a contract listing an amount for debris disposal payment. We don't do trash outs like that anymore for those companies, because they pay less than what our dump charges us for dropping off the crap in the first place.

There's s privately owned dump in St Paul-I don't remember the name but they will charge flat rates that is cheaper OR you can apply for your DOT numbers to cross State lines and go to the Power Plant by Hudson, Wi--they burn trash for power generation--they are free dumping. Note of caution--there is a DOT Center across the river that loves to fine you for every little thing

We learned early on that getting Rolloff containers is the only way to go PLUS it was leverage against chargebacks since we would never have them removed until paid in full.

Joeinpa,

Yes many landfills in Mn and Ia charge by the cubic foot. A few years ago the avg was $52/cf. and yes it was very pricey. A 7x14 dump trailer would cost around $1,000 to dump vs a Rolloff container was $600-700.

That's insane! I'm paying $43 a ton at my local transfer station, in Iowa. It's rarely busy. You drive into the shed on hard surface and dump your load right on the floor. Usually in and out in 5 min. Cash, check, or account. No credit cards. Nice in the winter being enclosed....stinks like hell in the summer!
