Organics recycling to roll out at City buildings

You’ll soon be able to recycle organics at City Hall, the Public Service Center and City of Lakes buildings.

What can you put in the organics recycling bins?

Do not include: non-certified compostable coffee cups, plastic bags and food-service items; milk cartons; ice cream tubs; Chinese-food containers; microwave-popcorn bags; paper coated with foil; Styrofoam; products labeled “biodegradable”; diapers; sanitary products; cleaning and baby wipes; and yard waste.

Look for these bins in break rooms and kitchenettes in the coming weeks at City Hall, the Public Service Center and City of Lakes:

The organics recycling program will help the City reduce trash, create compost and improve soil quality. The internal organics recycling program was successfully tested recently by employees in Public Works, Health, Regulatory Services, the Mayor’s Office and the City Council offices.

All across Minneapolis

Residential organics recycling goes citywide this spring. It’s all part of the move to become a zero-waste city. Find more information at www.minneapolismn.gov/organics.
