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.
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:
Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 7,000 gallons of water.
Recycling in Minnesota reduces emissions equal to taking 2.3 million cars off the road.
Over 19,000 Minnesota jobs are involved with recycling.
Each year, the recycling industry contributes $64 million in taxes to help pay for public services.
