Recycling just got easier, and more inclusive, in St. Paul. Starting Monday, residents can put all recyclables into one bin for pickup. They can also recycle more plastics — things like produce and deli containers, yogurt cups, and shampoo bottles.
In the first six weeks of single-sort recycling, Minneapolis saw an increase of nearly 400 tons’ worth of recycled materials from the same period last year.
A Minneapolis city committee voted unanimously to kick its current recycling program to the curb. Currently, Minneapolis won’t take your recycling unless the cans, glass, plastic and newspapers are separated.
