A new recycling facility may soon be available in Isanti County after the Isanti County Board of Commissioners approved a recycling facility license for Corbin Miller of Miller Recycling.

Miller will now have to get a permit from Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and then request a building permit from the county before constructing a pole type shed at the facility, located at 30035 Buchanen Street Northeast, Isanti. It is expected to be a metal recycling facility.
