yard waste drop-off + organics recycling + wood grinding + natural fertilizers + landscaping materials

Welcome to the SMSC Organics Recycling Facility (ORF), an enterprise owned and operated by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC). We are part of the SMSC’s focus on being a good steward of the earth.

At the ORF, we recycle organic materials —like paper, food, and yard waste—from residential, commercial and municipal customers. Then, we craft a nutrient-rich, natural fertilizer for gardening, farming, landscaping and more. We also process wood to be used as mulch and a renewable energy source. Our Dakotah Roots products are available for retail and wholesale.
