Lake County owns and operates a demolition landfill that is located within Silver Creek Township near the area known as Castle Danger.
The site is located up the shore from Two Harbors on State Highway 61 approximately 10 miles to West Castle Danger Road (Co. 106). You should turn left on 106 and travel about .7 miles, and then turn right on Bunker Hill Road. The facility shop/office is about 1 mile ahead on the right.
The demolition landfill is a permitted facility by the MPCA but is considered to be an unlined landfill; therefore there is a specific list of materials acceptable at this site. Lake County is no longer accepting asbestos containing materials.
Bring your unwanted mattress or box spring to the Castle Danger Demolition Landfill on:
Tuesday or Thursday: 12:30-3:00PM or the first Saturday of each month, 8:30AM-11:30 AM
Disposal Fees: Dry – $11 per piece Wet – $20 per piece
Lake County and Goodwill Industries have teamed up to provide an option to recycle that unwanted mattress or box spring. These products take up a lot of space in our landfills, and are very recyclable into:
- carpet pads
- packing materials
- shipping pads
- noise abatement products
- steel products
- wood mulch
