City begins cart rollout for citywide organics collection

If you are one of about 7,000 households signed up and living in the first phase areas of citywide organics collection, you’ll soon get to start. City crews are delivering the first green organics carts now through Sept. 18.

Minneapolis residents are great recyclers, and now they can keep even more useful materials out of the trash. More than 31,000 households have signed up for green organics recycling carts. To take part, residents must sign up by contacting Solid Waste and Recycling at 612-673-2917 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday or [email protected].

The second phase of the rollout begins in the spring.  Once the rollout is complete, all Solid Waste and Recycling customers who sign up will be able to take part. More information is available at organics recycling
