Vonco began managing and recycling demolition debris in the 1960’s at its original location 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. Vonco earned a reputation for superior customer service, which required us to open our second waste campus in 2003 to service the growing Twin Cities market. As part of our commitment to environmental stewardship, construction of this facility included incorporating a composite liner system utilizing multiple layers of protection.
In response to 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).
