CreekSide Organic Material Processing Facility (Hutchinson) - Solid Waste Permit

We invite you to comment on the draft solid waste permit for the Creekside compost facility in Hutchinson.

CreekSide Compost Facility serves Hutchinson and the surrounding area. CreekSide takes organic materials and compost and turns it into a soil product used by city departments and sold to consumers. The facility includes a source-separated organic materials composting area, yard waste composting area, brush/wood waste storage and chipping area, and mixed municipal solid waste transfer area.

CreekSide is authorized by its permit to accept and transfer up to 30 tons of municipal solid waste per day. Contact water from the composting activity is routed to the Hutchinson wastewater treatment plant for treatment.

All active landfills, solid waste, composting, and recycling facilities in Minnesota are required to have a solid waste permit. A solid waste permit is good for 10 years. If conditions change and modifications to the permit are necessary, the MPCA may review and amend the permit.
