Shamrock Environmental Landfill believes wholeheartedly in the recycling and processing of waste. Shamrock's system allows for the efficient, economical recovery of numerous resources and diverts valuable materials from the waste stream saving precious landfill airspace and reducing the need for virgin resources. Concrete and metal are consistently at the top of our list of recycled materials. However, other materials such as corrugated cardboard, brick, vinyl siding can also be separated from the waste stream and recycled.

Ongoing Community Service
When the communities in the region were devastated by the tragic flooding of June 2012, Shamrock was committed to lending a helping hand in the best way we could. Shamrock offered FREE disposal of flood debris to Cloquet residents. Additionally, we offered discounted at-cost disposal rates to Carlton and Aitkin Counties and also provided discounted transportation to remove debris. Shamrock continues its legacy of community involvement, today.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does environmental landfill mean?

All leachate is collected, tested, and properly disposed of in an approved facility.
What type of testing occurs to make sure our groundwater is safe?
Shamrock also conducts groundwater monitoring to test water quality. These tests provide a method to constantly monitor the ground water entering the facility and its quality leaving the facility, thus providing needed information as to whether a liner system is performing properly. Shamrock personnel are all certified C&D landfill operators.
