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 have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!

      I herd some lakes in the BWCA were still in good shape as of Monday but I'm sure that changed by now.

      Your best bet is to go some place like Cabela's or fleet farm. Look at what they got find what you like as far as price style and color and try them if there not what you like exchange them. I would definitely say boat seats are a "you get what you pay for" you buy a $40 seat it's probably going to be junk while a $100 seat will last a lot longer and be made better. Hope this helps!
