The decisions we make every day can affect our natural resources and have a major impact on the planet. One way to lessen our impact is to consider the entire lifespan of products, from beginning to the end. Thankfully, Dakota Valley Recycling and Dakota County makes it easy to find proper disposal of our products during the end of life stage.
Responsible disposal of household items is necessary for a healthy environment--for clean air, water and land. Dakota County now offers The Recycling and Disposal Guide, an online tool that helps determine the best way to get rid of your stuff so we can be good stewards of our environment.
The Guide includes the following:
- Information on what can be recycled and how to recycle it
- What items need to be kept OUT of the garbage because of their effect on our health and the environment
- Options for reusing or donating
