Minnesota law requires refuse haulers to disclose to their customers information about the disposal of their municipal solid waste and construction debris annually. You may be responsible for any liability that results from contamination at a facility where your waste has been deposited. Minnesota believes that its waste management system provides substantially more financial and environmental protection than depositing waste in landfills in other states. Managing your waste in Minnesota may minimize your potential liability.
