  • Camp Sustainably

    Camping and hiking are fantastic ways to adventure into and experience nature. Doing so in the summer lets us see plants and animals that don’t stick around in the winter. Although, sometimes we get so excited, we forget to plan accordingly and sustainably. It’s important to do this so that we can ensure nature remains if we want to keep exploring! Before you go out, take a look at these tips and tricks for camping in an environmentally friendly way. 

    1. Borrow gear and go reusable: To begin your trip, do what you can to buy used gear or borrow from friends. Not only will this save you money, but it's also Reusable platesvery eco-friendly. There's no need to invest in expensive equipment if you won't use it regularly. Reusable napkins, dishware, and silverware are essential, as is earth-friendly soap to wash them. Lastly, don't forget to pack all your food in a reusable container so that you aren't producing waste once you've eaten.

     2. Use non-toxic: No one likes to sport a sunburn or endure thick clouds of bugs, so you'll likely be bringing sunscreen and bug spray. When you do, keep in mind the flora and fauna around you that don't need that protection- bring non-toxic! Not only will the air, greenery, and animal life thank you for caring, but you'll also save yourself from breathing in harsh chemicals. 

    3. Pack it in, pack it out: Bring something to bring all of your waste in, or pack so that you don't generate waste. Cook with a portable portable camping stovestove so that you keep from impacting the ground with ash and burns from a fire. Campfires leave evidence of humans having been there and remember, you're the guest. If you do build a campfire, utilize the wood found on the ground or on your site- don't bring wood in to prevent the spread of invasive species. 

     4. Stay on the trail: Hiking is a great way to experience the naturally formed infrastructure around us, but remember we are visitors. Stay on the trail as you explore to prevent erosion and disruption of habitats of those who live there, plants and animals alike. Refrain from picking flowers and leave the rocks and logs alone. 

    5. Sleep sustainably: In your search of the perfect spot to lay your camp, keep in mind the softness of the ground. The softer it is, the more likely you are to Campers on rockprovoke erosion in that area. This means going for gravel, solidly packed dirt, or even a slab of rock. Choose a spot that is designated for camping by the forest or park you're in- there's no need to make a new campsite if one already exits. By being conscious of where you sleep, you'll minimize your footprint as well as any damage to the area.

     6. Skip the gadgets: For your own enjoyment and to fully experience what's out there, keep your gadgets at home. Watch the stars and listen to the sounds at night instead of bringing a laptop or portable dvd player. Bring a map instead of a cell phone or use your cell phone sparingly to keep from staring at a screen. Do all that you can to fully immerse yourself in the experience and joys of camping!

  • How to Recycle Aluminum Foil and Trays

    Did you know that aluminum foil and trays are 100% recyclable? In fact, they are just as recyclable as aluminum cans! The problem is, not all recycling centers accept foil and trays due to the fact that they often contain food waste which can contaminate collection. This leads to a reusable material ending up in a landfill where it takes about 400 years to break down.

  • How To Recycle Batteries

    From lithium ion to alkaline to zinc-carbon, there are many different types of batteries that you may encounter every day in your home. But do you know what to do with them?

    In many cases, you are able to bring your batteries directly back to the retailer. In Dakota County this includes but is not limited to: Target, Walmart, Home Depot, all car parts stores, Best Buy, RadioShack, Sams Club, Staples, Batteries Plus, and Lowe's. 

    Lithium Ion  Lithium Ion Battery

    Also known as a rechargeable battery, these batteries have become extremely common due to their convenience and cost savings. However, they do contain hazardous materials and are illegal to dispose of in your household garbage bin. Instead, place tape over the terminals and bring them to a retailer or the recycling zone to dispose of them for free.

    Alkaline Alkaline Battery

    Alkaline batteries are another very common household battery and come in many shapes, colors and sizes. Perhaps the common is the gold and black battery with the word “alkaline” written somewhere on the battery. These types of batteries can be disposed of in your household garbage bin, BUT they do contain valuable materials so it is better to bring them to The Recycling Zone to be recycled. These batteries are not accepted in your curbside recycling bin because they are too small and often get lost in the process or fall through the cracks in the materials recycling facility. When it comes to batteries, if in doubt- bring it to The Recycling Zone.

    Car Batteries    Car Battery

    Automotive batteries, also commonly referred to as lead-acid batteries, are large square lead blocks. These batteries are a type of lithium ion batteries and are illegal to dispose of in your household garbage bin. Instead, you can recycle them at your local automotive store, or take them to The Recycling Zone in Dakota County. 

    Nickel-Cadmium Batteries      Nickel Cadmium Battery

    Nickel-cadmium batteries are another type of rechargeable battery that uses nickel oxide hydroxide and metallic cadmium instead of lithium. These batteries are also illegal to throw away in your household garbage and must be disposed of responsibly either through a retail store or by bringing them into The Recycling Zone.   

    The Recycling Zone

    3365 Dodd Road (South Highway 149)
    Eagan, MN 55121
    651-905-4520

    For more information about materials accepted and hours, visit our Recycling Zone guide. 

    Battery Handling Tips

    • Store batteries in a vented plastic bucket or sturdy cardboard box away from light bulbs and other breakable items
    • Tape the terminals with electrical or plastic tape to prevent short circuiting
    • Older batteries may rust and leak. If a battery appears to be dirty or have a film around the terminals, use caution and do not touch the areas leaking. 
    • Always wash your hands after handling batteries or use gloves to prevent touching hazardous materials

     

  • How To Recycle Plastic Bags

    Most plastic bags are made with materials that are recyclable, unfortunately this doesn’t mean they can go into your curbside bin. This includes grocery store plastic bags, zip lock bags, newspaper cover slips, bread loaf bags, and anything similar. Why? Because due to their size and shape, they end up clogging machines at recycling facilities.

  • Lakeville joins Dakota Valley Recycling!

    How to Participate

    1. Sign Up

    Call 952-891-7557 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    You'll receive a welcome kit with a free container label, compostable bags and details on what can and cannot go in the organics bin. You'll also receive the access code to enter the locked drop-off location. Anyone is welcome to participate, but the enclosure requires a code to prevent non-organic contamination. 

    2. Start Collecting Organic Waste                                                        

    You can use any container to collect organics such as:     

    • A small step containerBPI logo
    • A clean and empty ice cream bucket, coffee container, or other type of tub
    • A specially designed countertop organics container which can be purchased at local stores or online

    Line your container with a paper bag or certified compostable bags which are provided to residents for free at the drop-site. If you decide to purchase your own bags, make suCedar Grove Logore they have the BPIor Cedar Grove Logo on the bag.          

    When the bag is full, securely tie it closed and bring it to a drop-site near you. There are two locations in Dakota County Thompson County Park (360 Butler Ave, West St. Paul) or Lebanon Hills (opening November 3rd, Holland Lake Trailhead, 1100 Cliff Rd, Eagan).

    Accepted items:

    • All food, food scraps, peels, pits, etc.
    • Coffee grounds, filters and teabags

    • Certified compostable products: Items with the BPI or Cedar Grove certified compostable logo on the product or packaging
    • Hair and fur
    • Popsicle sticks and toothpicks
    • Houseplant trimmings and flowers

    Not accepted

    • Yard waste
    • Plastic bags
    • Pet waste, litter, or bedding
    • Fast food wrappers
    • Frozen food boxes
    • Microwave popcorn bags
    • Paper plates, bowls and cups without BPI or Cedar Grove certification

    Organics collected at these sites will be brought to a local organics recycling facility (The Mulch Store Specialized Environmental Technologies site) where it will be turned into compost; a nutrient-rich soil additive. Because the organics collected is brought to a commercial facility, meat, dairy, and bones are accepted among other food scrapes and napkins. Compost is beneficial because it improves soil quality, reduces erosion, and decreases the need for chemical fertilizers. Questions about this program?

  • Recycling Makes a Splash at Cascade Bay

    Recycling at Cascade Bay

    Cascade Bay Waterpark includes many fun-filled activities, making it a popular summer destination, and now there’s one more thing to get excited about – recycling! This year, Cascade Bay is introducing new, all-in-one trash and recycling containers that will make it easy for swimmers to discard items properly.

    The waterpark also offers delicious snacks and cool drinks, many of which are served in recyclable materials. With the new recycling containers, all the recycle goes into one, single recycling stream. This means plastic, aluminum, paper and cardboard can all be reused when placed into the recycling container. To make it even easier, the containers will also have labels with pictures to indicate which types of materials are accepted in the recycling.

    By paying attention to the signs on the containers, guests can relax on the lazy river knowing they are doing their part to keep the Earth and all of its water clean and healthy!

  • Reduce Food Waste

    According the National Resource Defense Council, the average American tosses 25% of the food they buy. That's like going to the grocery store, buying four bags of food, and leaving one in the parking lot. Food lost to the landfill also means wasted water to grow the food, wasted fuel to transport the food, wasted labor, wasted time, and wasted money.  

    Fortunately, there’s steps you can take to save the food.

    Check out these great resources to help you shop smarter, meal prep, freeze efficiently, and understand food labels:

  • Reel into Recycling

    Monofilament is a common type of fishing line made out of strong, yet flexible plastic, that is usually clear or slightly tinted. The line is not biodegradable and can cause devastating problems to aquatic and marine wildlife if not disposed of properly. Birds and wildlife are not able to see the line and can easily become tangled in it, often dying as a result. 

    Can you recycle fishing line?      

    Yes! Thanks to a local Eagle Scout, you can now recycle your monofilament line at numerous Lakes and parks in Dakota County. Do your part to help protect Minnesota’s natural resources and loved lakes by recycling on the go! 

    Where can you recycle fishing line?

    In Apple Valley, you can find these monofilament recycling boxes at the wood post at Cobblestone lake and the wood pier at Lac Lavon Park.

    In Eagan, you can find these boxes at the pier of Blackhawk Park, the metal pole and the pier of Carlson lake Park, the pier at Heine Pond Park, the Pier at Thomas Lake Park, the fence at the cluvert of Blackhawk Park, the wood post at Fish Lake Park, and the metal pole at Holz Lake.

    In Burnsville you can find these boxes at the pier of Wood Pond Park and the pier at Crystal Lake. 

    How is monofilament recycled?

    The line is collected from the drop-off bin and all non-plastic and non-recyclable parts are removed. It is then brought to a Berkly recycling facility where the line is melted down into hard plastic pellets that can be made into other products including fish habitat crates, tackle boxes, fish tank toys, and more! Since 1990, Berkley has recycled over 9 million miles of fishing line and helped save our natural resources.
