Curbside Composting

Starting in August, Minneapolis Solid Waste and Recycling is rolling out the the city's new curbside composting pickup for residential customers. Rollout for the entire city should be complete by spring 2016. The new program is an opt-in system and you can sign up right now by emailing swrcustomer@minneapolismn.gov or calling 612.673.2917.

The new organics collection will include many items that aren't recyclable and aren't able to be composted in conventional backyard compost piles. Curious about what will be compostable or the rollout schedule? Click here for more detailed information about the program, news on the rollout, including a map, and a signup for email updates.

Additionally, the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association Environmental Committee will be sponsoring a spring forum on the Minneapolis Organics Recycling Program. All Minneapolis residents are welcome and encouraged to attend.
