DVR is the partnership recycling department for the Cities of Apple Valley, Eagan and Burnsville that connects residents and businesses to recycling, composting and waste disposal information.
Reducing, reusing and recycling can reduce an organization's costs, provide a sense of pride and assist your community in sustaining a quality environment. Dakota Valley Recycling recognizes businesses, schools and organizations that keep the environment in mind with ARROW: Awards for Reduction & Recycling Of Waste. ARROW is a free, voluntary program for businesses in Eagan, Apple Valley and Burnsville that do any of the following:
Americans use 85 million tons of paper per year; about 680 pounds per person. Recycling is an important and accepted way to reduce the impact on our natural resources. In 2003, 5.75 million trees were saved because of paper recycling in Minnesota alone. Reducing and reusing further these efforts. People overwhelmingly see recycling efforts as a positive step for businesses to take. They are also buying more recycled-content products and supporting environmentally-minded businesses.
To have your business or organization recognized by the ARROW program, simply fill out the application here and return it to Dakota Valley Recycling via mail, email or fax. Since 2002, over 130 local businesses, schools and organizations have joined the ARROW program to be recognized for their environmentally-preferable choices in managing resource use.

When your business or organization is recognized by ARROW, you will receive a certificate and window cling to let customers know that you care about resource use and a clean, healthy community. Your business will also be included in Dakota Valley Recycling's annual advertisement, which is published during the week of America Recycles Day (November 15). Additionally, your business and a link to your website will be added to the Dakota Valley Recycling ARROW member directory.
