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.
It’s that time of year again for our 5th annual Pumpkin Compost event! The event will occur on the morning of Saturday November 5th 2016, the first Saturday following Halloween, and will be held at the Eagan Community Center (1501 Central Parkway, Eagan). The one-day-only event runs from 9am to noon and is free for residents of Apple Valley, Burnsville, and Eagan.
Recently at the MN Zoo's Great Clips IMAX theater, staff have expanded their recycling to include plastic wrappers from the packaging of 3-D glasses. While 3-D movies come with recycling options for the glasses, Cindy of the IMAX theater noticed that each wrapper was being thrown away to the dark side... I mean... the trash. Seeing a potential to divert the packaging ("film"), Cindy inquired where it could go and how to effectively collect it.

EAGAN COMMUNITY CENTER--
In the weeks leading up to Halloween, events and activities were buzzing with families. The Halloween Hodgepodge is always a family favorite, with hundreds of families in attendance each year. Dakota Valley Recycling was happy to attend with a booth that included resources and a ring-toss game for kids. Dakota County Master Recycler Randy Locke and DVR staff Nick Voss geared up and prepared for the challenge, ready to greet hundreds of exuberant unicorns, superheroes, and zombies.
