Rice County, Minnesota Recycling RFP

Rice County, Minnesota seeks to enter into an exclusive single-sort recycling services contract with a company that has the resources and ability to provide processing, transportation, separation, recycling and revenue from the sale of recyclables consolidated at the Rice County Recycling Center in Dundas, Minnesota.

  1. Contractor will consolidate and process recyclables to manage and maximize the fullest recovery possible of recyclable materials.
  2. A cost-effective and stable recycling program for Rice County.
