(REDWOOD FALLS, MN, May 15, 2020) In response to Redwood and/or Renville County’s policy(ies) regarding limited exposure during the COVID-19 Pandemic, the RRRSWA has implemented measures to help ensure reduced contact between employees and members of the public. 

Beginning May 18, 2020, the following services will continue to be altered or suspended until further notice: 

  1. PRIVATE HAULERS: Our doors will remain locked to the public, but we will once again accept private haulers’ 

garbage at the Redwood/Renville Regional Material Recovery and Transfer Facility (RRRMRF or MRF) in Redwood Falls, with specific stipulations. Payment for disposal will be by check only, no cash transactions will be allowed. When you arrive at the facility, please proceed to the scale and the operator will have more instructions for you. 

  1. DEMOLITION MATERIAL DISPOSAL: The Renville County Demolition Landfill will also re-open to commercial 

haulers, contractors and private haulers, but the doors will remain locked. Payment for disposal by private/self- haulers at the landfill will also be by check only. You will be asked to remain in your vehicle while the scale operator inspects your load and will have further instruction upon arrival. 

  1. HOUSEHOLD HAZARDOUS WASTE FACILITIES: Both the Redwood and Renville County Household Hazardous 

Waste Facilities and product exchange rooms will remain closed. 

  2. If you have pre-shredded paper, please make sure it is in sealed plastic bags so it can be placed in the 

specially marked gray cart outside of the MRF Office area during regular business hours. b. If you are a business shredding customer, we want to accommodate you, but need to minimize person-to- person contact. Please call us at least 1 (one) hour before you are ready to bring us a full cart. When you call us, we will provide instructions on cart exchange procedures. (No cart exchanges after 3:30 p.m. M-F) c. If you have personal papers to be shredded, we ask that you call us at least 1 (one) hour in advance of 

your arrival (no later than 3:30 p.m.) We can provide a secure cart for you to place your papers into. The cart will be placed outside and when you are done, we will bring the cart back inside and re-lock it. 

  2. Please stay tuned for information about the June-October collections. As soon as we hear from our 

disposal company, we will post whether they are being held or cancelled. We post on the website, Facebook, and the local radio stations. You may contact S.W. Recycling for alternatives: 1-800-366-8665.
