2016 Pumpkin Composting Event

EAGAN COMMUNITY CENTER--

On Saturday, November 5th, we held our annual pumpkin composting event at the Eagan Community Center. This year, with your help, we set an amazing new record for participation! Read on to find out just how many pumpkins we collected. 


The Recycling Awakens at the IMAX

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. 

2016 De-clutter Workshop

 

BURNSVILLE CITY HALL-- 

On March 9th, Burnsville Community Services and Dakota Valley Recycling teamed together to offer a declutter workshop for seniors. With a hefty turnout of over 140 participants, spring cleaning must be well underway in Burnsville! Presenters included Burnsville code enforcement, Burnsville fire department, and Dakota Valley Recycling. Weren't at the presentation but interested in de-cluttering? See our resources below.

Hat-Trick: Trash, Recycling, Compost

This hockey season, local ice arenas are on a mission to score a hat trick... collecting trash, recycling, and organics. If successful, they may be able to meet the biggest goal of all: zero waste. 

But puns aside, the environmental and facility improvements to local ice arenas have been made possible solely by partnerships and community involvement. From building managers, to businesses, to Dakota Valley Recycling and Dakota county, to the hockey teams themselves, we're all on the same team.
