Kandiyohi County to construct new shed for landfill compactor


WILLMAR — In order to keep a 41-ton machine with steel tires studded with “tipping-type teeth” off U.S. Highway 71, a new shed will be built this fall at the Kandiyohi County landfill.

The massive landfill compactor is currently housed in a maintenance building by the main entrance on the south end of the landfill.
