The Northwest Regional Planning Commission’s Environmental Services consist of a number of ongoing programs that address environmental issues and programs in the region.

The Recycling Control Commission of Burnett and Washburn Counties is responsible for the development, implementation and operation of recycling facilities and programs in the two counties. Northwest Regional Planning Commission (NWRPC) has provided staffing and support for this program since 1991. 

Northwest Cleansweep was developed by NWRPC in 1995 to provide for the collection of hazardous wastes throughout the ten-county service area. The program provides these services to households, farms, farm-related businesses, schools, municipalities, and businesses through a mixture of multiple single day collection events during the summer months and a mobile collection of hazardous wastes in the spring and fall of each year.
