Commercial Access is NOW Prohibited


In 2021, commercial businesses CAN NOT purchase a compost access pass. Residents who have commercial Sherburne County businesses perform work at their residences may use their compost access passes to access the compost site to alleviate disposal charges that the business would pass on to the property owner. Commercial businesses located outside of Sherburne County doing work within the county will not be able to access the compost sites and will have to find an alternative site to dump.  

For more information, please contact Sherburne County Zoning Office at 763-765-4450.
