Our Story

We’re not your typical solid waste management facility, we’re a one-stop-shop for your industrial and demolition waste needs. We offer integrated waste solutions through solid waste processing that incorporates sustainable environmental practices, all at a single location.

Our commitment to environmental stewardship goes beyond recycling and waste processing and starts with the physical appearance of our sites — clean, well organized, and minimally disruptive to our local communities. All Vonco waste campuses are backed by a team of professionals that are Minnesota Certified Landfill Operators and leaders in the solid waste industry.

Vonco’s History

Vonco began managing and recycling demolition debris in the 1960’s in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota. From there, operations expanded to Rogers, Minnesota with its first permit-by-rule solid waste disposal site. The first Vonco facility opened in 1991 to serve the construction and demolition waste needs of greater Minneapolis and the Northwest suburbs.

By focusing on customers, Vonco grew quickly, opening our second waste campus in 2003 to service the growing Twin Cities market. As part of our practice of environmental stewardship, construction of this facility included a composite liner system utilizing multiple layers of protection.

In response to increased market demands, Vonco II, in Becker, Minnesota converted its location to a full-scale waste campus capable of accepting all non-hazardous construction, demolition and industrial wastes. In 2010, Vonco V in Duluth, Minnesota also converted its location to a full-scale waste campus. In 2017, Vonco II in Becker, Minnesota opened a facility to bale old corrugated cardboard (OCC).

We continue to serve customers wholeheartedly by providing environmentally sound integrated waste solutions that will continue for years to come.

What our partners say:

Environmental Restoration LLC has worked with Vonco for many years. Their customer service is top-notch, and their operations are second to none. I would always recommend Vonco to anyone I work with.
Nicholas Wadler, Recycling Operations Manager
Vonco has been by my side for over 5 years, like no one else in the industry. Recently, we needed a rush profile approval, trucking, excavation and disposal so we could open the highway after a major ice event. Within hours, we were moving waste! I couldn’t be happier and my client couldn’t have been more impressed!
