A photo tour of the Dem-Con Shakopee facility, by Jana Peterson/Pine JournalWhile every facility and landfill is unique, these photos give some idea of what Dem-Con's proposed landfill in Cloquet would look like.
Driving up, trucks must check in at the gatehouse and hand over or fill out any necessary paperwork before they're allowed to dump their loads. The landfill needs to document what job they're coming from, what kind of waste it is, how much it weighs (the trucks are weighed on site). The landfill gets audited for this information by the state, county and city, Dem-Con's Bill Keegan said. In Cloquet the gatehouse would likely be a single-wide-trailer-sized building.
