Recycling

Recycling is an important way to reduce the impact of our waste on our community, locally and globally. It is a very easy thing to do, and it matters more than you think. Minnesotans make a big impact by recycling more than 2 million tons per year. 

There are many benefits of recycling including:

Saving Natural Resources

Recycling 1 ton of paper saves 7,000 gallons of water.

Reducing Greenhouse Gases

Recycling in Minnesota reduces emissions equal to taking 2.3 million cars off the road.

Creating Jobs

Over 19,000 Minnesota jobs are involved with recycling.

Reducing Our Taxes

Each year, the recycling industry contributes $64 million in taxes to help pay for public services.
