Purpose and Goal

  • The purpose and goal of the Le Sueur County Solid Waste and Recycling Program is to protect human health and the environment by ensuring responsible management of hazardous and nonhazardous waste by:
  • Protecting the public’s health, preventing public nuisances, and preventing contamination of the groundwater and other environments of Le Sueur County from solid waste through the control of number, location and operation of solid waste facilities.
  • Preserving and protecting our land and water resources.
  • Assuring that all individuals are informed and responsible for their actions regarding solid waste that may affect the environment and the community now and in the future.
  • Supporting activities that will promote use and reuse of materials found in solid waste that would otherwise be disposed in ways that would not recapture the useful characteristics of its components.
