A curbside organics recycling program has been in the works for a few years now in Bloomington. The City took its first step in 2018 when it opened two public organics drop-off sites. Today, nearly 1,800 residents bring their organics to be composted at these sites. The drop-off program has helped establish a group of organics champions, and provided early education on organics recycling before it’s rolled out citywide through a curbside organics program. The City will continue to operate the free organics drop off sites for residents in multifamily housing not serviced through the City’s garbage and recycling program. To get started composting now through one of the City’s organics drop-off sites, visit blm.mn/organics.
