Prescription Drug Medication Drop-Off - Unused prescription medications or over-the-counter medications may be dropped off at the Medication Drop Off Site located in the foyer to City Hall Monday  - Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Proper disposal keeps medication from being misused or contaminating our fragile water sources. The drop box is a secure, safe and anonymous way to dispose of leftover medications. There are no forms to fill out or waiting in line.

 RV DUMP SITE - The location is at 605 Lake Avenue. The RV should enter off Lake Avenue and exit from the ambulance garage driveway. It is very important not to block the ambulance driveway in case of an emergency. A secure box is installed for donations towards the maintenance of the site. Paynesville Township and Ted's RV are supporters of the RV dump in the same format the City supports the Oil Depot. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Ron Mergen, Public Works Director at (320) 243-3714 extension 230 or
