Who We Are

Dem-Con Materials Recovery Facility

Dem-Con Recovery & Recycling was established in 1999 as one of the first facilities in the Twin Cities to recycle mixed construction debris.  Through our growth in the construction and demolition industry our knowledge and capabilities grew and we began to process many types of materials at our facility.  To continue to grow and meet the needs of our customers, single-stream recycling was a natural fit for our environmental campus.
Dem-Con Materials Recovery accepts recyclable materials generated from commercial and residential sources.  We partnered with Liberty Paper who has end market expertise and experience moving materials through various markets.  LPI’s expertise partnered with Dem-Con’s operations experience created a unique opportunity to provide recycling services to the Twin Cities and greater Minnesota.
Dem-Con is excited to offer this service and help our communities recycle more.  As our population grows and our customers needs change, we will continually look for new ways to educate, innovate, and recycle.

Education Center

We feel strong about educating people on the process, benefits and capabilites of the MRF – both young and old.
Our classroom uses a visual map of the MRF as well as tablets to learn and interact with the MRF.
The “Sort It Out” station allows visitors to get a hands on experience with different materials the MRF can handle.  This allows people to understand what materials are and are not acceptable at the MRF.

Learn & Interact with technology and real commodities to know more about our MRF and its capabilities.
