A place to throw away junk??

6 posts in this topic

Is there a place around Miltona where a guy could throw away some old couch frames and other misc. junk? Thanks in advance.

The Douglas County Land Fill. From Miltona, HWY 29 South , past carlos corners, you will see the sign on the right.

The price is very reasonable and this way, you are not leaving a pile of junk in the woods for someone to clean up in 10 years.

A related question. Is there a place to take recycling in the Osakis OR Alex area ?

Just south of the Tech School on Jefferson St. is a recycle center. They take pretty much everything I believe. I have dropped off glass, plastic, old gas, used oil and old paints and varnishes.

The Douglas/Pope county recycling center is east of 3M, (3M is on south broadway(AKA hwy 29 and 27), on the other side of Broadway from the Ford dealer and automax). They take common recycling material, and hazardous material too. Old appliances and larger items go to Jacks recycling east of the Victoria landing about 3/4 mile. If you can't find it, they also have a recycling center in Nelson where they will be able to help you find the other place. As said above, the land fill is on N Hwy 29 between Alex and Carlos corners.

Look for Pike Road street sign off 29 for the Landfill.

the Pope/Douglas center is great for household hazardous and common recyclables.

As mentioned, Jack's takes a lot of the other stuff...county road 81...east of the victoria landing,

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
