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

Reduce Greenhouse Gases

Recycling in Minnesota reduces emissions equal to taking 2.3 million cars off the road.

Create Jobs

Over 19,000 Minnesota jobs are involved with recycling.

Reduce Our Taxes

Each year, the recycling industry contributes $64 million in taxes to help pay for public services.
