Curbside organics

The City has begun considering how to offer curbside organics recycling to comply with Hennepin County Ordinance 13. The ordinance requires cities with more than 10,000 residents to make curbside organics recycling available in 2022.

The City recognizes that there is also a lot of community interest in making this service available. Interest in the organics drop-offs program has continued to grow. Over 1,650 residents signed up to divert their organics from garbage. Watch for more information regarding plans for curbside organics recycling in the Briefing in coming months.
