Stormwater Tips

Please do your part by properly disposing of trash and recycling cans, bottles, paper & other appropriate materials.  Much of the garbage on the banks of the Mississippi or lakes of Minneapolis arrive there via a storm drain!  The simple acts of putting trash where it belongs, recycling that can or not flicking that cigarette butt out the window can make a profound impact.


You can do your part by implementing these five simple actions:

1. Never put anything down a storm drain - ONLY RAIN IN THE STORM DRAIN

2. Use reusable bags instead of disposable bags;

3. Choose products with less packaging when possible;

4. Replace disposable items with reusable ones such as bottles, plates and cups; and

5. Recycle! Keep recyclables and trash in covered and secured containers.
