Recycling

Recycling is an important way to reduce the impact of our waste on our community, locally and globally.  It is a very easy thing to do, and it matters more than you think.  Minnesotans make a big impact by recycling more than 2 million tons per year. 

There are many benefits of recycling:90-gallon green recycling bin
