OWEF Tipping Floor Access Registration is required for companies or persons requesting access to dispose of acceptable wastes that can be directly tipped at the Olmsted Waste to Energy Facility (OWEF). This registration is required so County staff can confirm the waste delivered is acceptable at OWEF, to approve vehicles access to the tipping floor, and to provide the Registrant information for training their drivers on the policies, procedures, safety concerns, and certain hazards associated on OWEF’s tipping floor.
NOTE: The OWEF Tipping Floor Access Registration should be used in place of the
Basic Registration for companies or persons that are required to be registered under the Basic Registration and/or are also requesting access to the OWEF tipping floor.

If you have any questions regarding this registration process, please call
