About John Maattala: John was a long time RAM member and solid waste officer for Crow Wing County who passed away in 2011. He was a great asset to the solid waste and recycling community and he is greatly missed by colleagues and friends. John was an avid outdoors-man and had served in the U.S. Air Force. This bin grant is given each year in his honor.
