Resource Recovery
Ramsey and Washington Counties work together on policies for recycling, yard waste, composting and household hazardous waste programs, and explore recovering energy from trash.
Resource Recovery 

Trash
Most residents of Ramsey County have to arrange for their own trash collection.  Reducing trash through recycling and composting not only protects the environment, but can save money on your trash bill and the County Environmental Charge (CEC).
