Notes Regarding the "Dump":
We would ask that if you use the dump to be respectful and use proper procedures i.e. recyclable material in the correct recycle bin, no construction material, don't leave garbage of any type on the ground, and close all of the lids by securing the chain. Use the Osage or Detroit Lakes sites to get rid of appliances, tires, etc.
Penalty for Non-Compliance of Posted Dump Rules
Township Ditches and Road Easements:
The ditches and road easements in our township are there to provide correct water drainage, clear view while driving and an area for snow removal from the roadways.

It has come to our attention that residents use ditches to discard grass clippings, branches, other miscellaneous items and use easements to put private property. By doing this we cannot correctly maintain our roads while grading, mowing or snow plowing. It also hinders proper water drainage. Lastly, by putting personal property in the road easement area it creates a safety hazard.

Residents are asked to discard all waste properly and not in our ditches or easements for personal use.
