- Minneapolis Expands Curbside Organics Collection
In October, the City of Minneapolis started piloting organics collection in portions of the Hiawatha, Longfellow, Phillips and Seward neighborhoods. Minneapolis has existing pilot organics recycling www.hennepin.us/organics projects in the ECCO and Linden Hills neighborhoods. Residents in these pilot areas can add organics collection to their trash collection service at no additional charge.
Organic waste, which includes food scraps and non-recyclable paper products, makes up about 25 percent of what we throw away. In an organics recycling program, organic waste is recycled into valuable compost that is used in landscaping and road construction projects.
Hennepin County has partnered with Minneapolis to expand residential organics recycling in the city, including developing outreach materials for the new pilot project.
