DETROIT LAKES (KDLM) - The Becker County Hazardous Waste Facility will host a Trash & Treasure Sale on Wednesday and Thursday.

Through a countywide Waste Diversion and Material Reuse Pilot Study, Becker County has collected a number of interesting and reusable items including doors, sinks and grills that would otherwise be buried in the Becker County Landfill.

The sale, located at the Becker County Hazardous Waste Facility will run Wednesday, 12pm-4:30 and Thursday 8-4:30.

Becker County, with its partners, Better Futures Minnesota, and the Natural Resources Research Institute at the University of Minnesota – Duluth say the program helps demonstrate the significant benefits of diverting household goods and building materials from the landfill.
