MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis is using Earth Day to continue to roll more of its new single-sort recycling system.

So far, about 30,000 homes have the new single-sort bins. The blue containers let you toss all your recyclables into one place, instead of pre-sorting.

On Monday, Mayor R.T. Rybak was out helping crews deliver the bins to people who didn’t get one last year.

The city says since it started this change, it’s already collected 63 percent more recycling.

Everyone in Minneapolis should have a big blue bin by the end of June.
