Olmsted County's Kalmar Landfill is located between Rochester and Byron at 7401 19th Street NW, Rochester, Minnesota. The natural geology below the Kalmar site provides an ideal location for a landfill.
Three types of cells have been constructed to contain waste primarily from licensed or registered haulers:
Please Note - All loads being delivered to the landfill must be covered and contained. Any person determined to be responsible for debris or liquids on the road rights-of-way shall be liable for the costs of removal thereof.
Large quantities of tires are subject to a special handling fee of $50 per 1,000 lbs. of tires, to offset extra processing (shredding and hauling). This is in addition to applicable disposal fees.
Household quantities of tires (eight or fewer per load) can be taken to the Olmsted County Recycling Center Plus for a fee.
