Residential organics recycling
To take part, residents must sign up by contacting Solid Waste and Recycling at 612-673-2917 Monday–Friday 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. or at SWRcustomer@minneapolismn.gov. Organics recycling will begin in two phases, with 25 percent of customers having organics recycling available in August 2015 and the rest in spring 2016. The phases are by area for the most efficient collection routes.
Even if you don’t have organics recycling pickup at your home, you can bring your organics for recycling to one of five organics recycling drop-off sites.
Organics recycling roll out map
|If your block is Green, you are in Phase I of the roll-out and will receive your cart in August this year if you sign up to participate. If your block is Orange, you are in Phase II of the roll-out and will receive your cart in spring 2016 if you sign up to participate.|
Phase I and Phase II routes were determined with consideration to the following criteria:
· Location of existing SSO pilots and desire to continue uninterrupted service
· Geographic distribution, ensuring some customers from each ward were included
· Route collection and travel time efficiencies
