Disposal of Railroad ties

Question

Kylersk

The fiberglass boat post reminded me of this..

I've got about a dozen or so RailRoad ties that are half rotted and would like to dispose of them. Last I checked, most garbage places wouldnt take them, and the one that did wanted something like $100 to take them.

Anyone have any other ideas?

if they are in decent enough shape, you could give them away, I use them for fence posts!! it they are too rotten though, you might just have to take them to a landfill.

There's a place in Stillwater called Buberl Recycling & Composting. A co worker of mine took his there a few years back. It cost $5 a tie. Give them a call.

burning them would be illegal if they are true railroad ties that are treated with tar or other material. The reason they are so hard to get rid of is cause they are considered hazerdous.....and oversized. See if your town has a bulk pick up program or a recycling center. Call the county they should be able to tell you where to bring them.

Check on the pricing before you bring them to any land fill.

Had some in the trailer when when i was dumping a load of tore off shingles.Almost caused a shutdown at the land fill.When i went up to the scale to pay the bill they had an extra charge of $200.00 for hazardous waste,there was at the most ten rotten railroad ties in the load.Wasnt trying to do something wrong,i didnt realize at the time that they were hazardous waste.$5.00 a piece to get rid of sounds pretty good.Burl.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
