Basic trash (nonrecyclable, nonhazardous, but too large for regular trash) is 5 per pound.

The hazardous waste collection will accept: adhesives, aerosols, chemicals, cleaners, fluorescent bulbs, fuels, mercury, paints, poisons, rechargable batteries, roofing tar, and solvents. Agricultural waste, business waste, and medical waste will not be accepted.

Used oil and oil filters can be recycled at any time at the facility in the parking lot of the Koronis Civic Arena (next to the Paynesville Township maintenance garage).
