Recycling And Organics Contract Negotiations Nearing Completion

In preparation for the Hennepin County mandated roll out of organics recycling, the City is finalizing a service provider contract for both curbside recycling and organics. Organics recycling is the collection of food scraps, non-recyclable paper, and other compostable products. By diverting these products to a commercial compost facility, they can be recycled into nutrient-rich soil instead of ending up in a landfill. Hennepin County is requiring all cities with more than 10,000 residents to make curbside organics recycling available Jan 1, 2022.

‘Nasty’ Strain Of RSV Spikes In Minnesota Children As School Year Begins

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Before school even starts, respiratory viruses are spreading among kids. Just last month, more than 1,000 patients tested positive for infections that are not COVID-19. Hospital staff across the Twin Cities are stretched, treating an increasing number of children with respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV, says Dr. Stacene Maroushek of Hennepin Healthcare. “Since 2017, we have been seeing a newer strain of RSV that’s been circulating in the Upper Midwest that is perhaps a little bit more vigilant or a little bit more nasty,” Maroushek said.

Can I recycle this?

It's the age-old question that never seems to have an easy answer. Fortunately, understanding how things are recycled can help point you in the right direction. The purpose of a recycling facility is to sort items by type (paper with paper, #5 plastics with other #5 plastics, etc.) so that the companies that use the recycled materials can be certain they are pure - that there's no "contaminants" that will compromise the final product's integrity. This is why mixed material items such as spray bottle pumps (made of plastic and metal) or plastic-coated paper boxes are usually not recyclable.
