SKB will add new recycling efforts


SKB Environmental accepts municipal solid waste ash at its Rosemount facility. Within that ash are tiny particles of recyclable metals.

There’s a market for those metals, and landfill manager John Domke said SKB wants to tap into that market. The company has partnered with a recycling company called Gem-Ash to build a facility to separate the metals and sell them.
