LITCHFIELD -- The Meeker County Sheriff's Office and Medical Examiner's Office are investigating the death of a Waste Management employee who was found lying next to a rolloff container at a job site on Wednesday.

The employee's name is being withheld until all his family can be notified. The sheriff's office said he was a 56-year-old from Lester Prairie.

The sheriff's office received a call at 4:11 p.m. Wednesday that the man was found lying next to a construction Dumpster on a driveway in rural Dassel, on 746th Avenue in Collinwood Township. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The sheriff's office said he was apparently loading construction materials into a rolloff container when he died. The death does not appear suspicious, authorities said.

The Dassel Fire and Rescue Department and Waste Management personnel assisted at the scene.
