Dakota Valley Recycling

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.

Compost and Yard Waste

Food waste accounts for about 11% of the garbage thrown away in the Twin Cities metro area.  That's over 2 pounds per person per week!  This waste could be put to a much better use, like being composted.  Check out the information on backyard composting or vermicomposting (composting with worms).

Yard waste is illegal to put in the garbage in Minnesota, so learn about your options and what you should do with it.  Check out the yard waste sites from the menu on the left.  Or call your garbage hauler to inquire about yard waste service they offer.
