We are very proud of the new Bike & Walking Trail. This trail is only for PEDESTRIAN & BIKE USE ONLY! It is NOT to be drove on by vehicles or ATVs of any sort!! PLEASE do not drive on the Bike & Walking Trail. It is not meant for that type of use and will ruin the brand-new trail. Please be respectful. This is an expensive project that we received grant funding for and do not want to see it ruined. Please take pride in our community.

Recycling Saves you Disposal Fees
If you think that recycling isn't worth the bother, think about what it costs you to throw your recyclables in the trash. Clearwater County pays tipping fees by the ton for trash hauled to the Fosston Incinerator. As the tonnage increases, the costs also increase. A state-of-the-art Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) recovers recyclables from trash, but the MRF operates more efficiently if it's separating mixed recyclables only, rather than recyclables  from trash. Some of the recyclables aren't pulled out and end up in the landfill. Not only that, but the tipping fee for mixed recyclables is ZERO, which saves the county money. You can reduce the volume of rubbish by recycling your paper, cardboard, plastic food and beverage containers, steel cans and aluminum and glass containers. Take them to the recycling bins located by the County Highway Department in Bagley. Thank-you
