Solid Waste and Recycling in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Armatage Neighborhood Association are proud to announce the opening of residential organics drop-offs at Armatage Park. The drop-off will be open beginning on Tuesday October 14, 2014.
Residential organics include all food waste (including food items that you should not compost in a backyard bin such as meat, bones and dairy), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds, filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and popsicle sticks. Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted. Residents must drop-off their organic materials in a compostable bag (either paper or certified compostable plastic). Larger items such as pizza boxes and wax coated boxes do not need to be bagged.
The drop-off is open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost. For the first six weeks to two months, the drop-off will have the following designated delivery times when volunteers will be on site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather some information from residents that will be used to help craft the message for the future city-wide organics collection program.
· Tuesdays 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
· Saturdays 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
It is anticipated that drop off hours will expand once the orientation period is complete after six weeks to two months.
