Gopher Resource, LLC
Recycling - Plastic & Auto BatteriesManufacturing & Processing
Gopher Resource has been a national environmental solutions provider for over 75 years, protecting the earth and preserving natural resources. Our purpose is the safe and efficient recycling of lead batteries throughout North America, using sustainable practices and advanced technology.
We sort, process and recycle spent auto, industrial and stationery batteries. Each year, our company keeps over 22 million spent batteries out of landfills. Collectively, we are committed to environmental sustainability, safety, customer excellence, employee opportunity and community stewardship.
Our Eagan campus has been in operation since 1946 and is less than five miles from our national headquarters. Throughout over 75 years of steady growth, we have kept this facility – and its jobs – in the same location. Today, we leverage advanced technology to recycle spent lead batteries and select household waste in a safe, sustainable manner. To help reduce energy consumption and protect the environment, we have voluntarily invested millions in eco-friendly practices.
For the past 30 years, Gopher Resource has operated The Recycling Zone in Dakota County, a community recycling center located adjacent to our Eagan campus. The center provides safe, convenient recycling of select household waste, electronics and general recyclable items that would otherwise load up landfills. Most materials are accepted at no charge to county residents and businesses.
