Demolition & Asbestos Disposal

Asbestos Disposal

County residents seeking disposal of asbestos containing materials such as floor tiles, pipe wrap, or transite siding (commonly called slate siding) or other asbestos containing demolition materials may contact the La Crosse County Landfill as a possible disposal option. Containers of asbestos tar or adhesives may be brought to the Household Hazardous Waste Facility for proper disposal. 

For more asbestos information including testing, inspections and abatement visit the Minnesota Department of Health website and other helpful links below.


All demolition activities must comply with Minn. R. 7035.0805.

Demolition debris must be disposed of at a demolition landfill or transfer station. Burial of such debris is allowed if a Demolition Debris Disposal Facility Permit-By-Rule is obtained from the MPCA. 

What to do with construction and demolition debris: 

  • Reuse Option: Habitat for Humanity Re-Store will accept donations of gently used building materials, appliances, cabinets, hardware, tools, and furniture. You can also schedule a pick up! 
  • Transfer Stations: Miller Scrap and Redbox, a division of Matejka Recycling, will accept construction and demolition debris, scrap metals, garbage, and some recyclables that are self-hauled.
  • Roll-off Dumpsters: Several solid waste haulers in our county will distribute and dispose of construction and demolition waste through roll-offs. Visit the Areas of Operation for Solid Waste Haulers page for more information on who can service your area.
