Recycle Well

To make recycling truly sustainable we must educate people on the process, benefits and capabilities of the MRF Both young and old can benefit and find out what it truly means to Recycle Well. Recycle Minnesota counts on all of you to RECYCLE WELL. We work closely with local government and national organizations to develop best practices when it comes to recycling. We promise to do our best to educate the public on the best way to put recyclables into your curbside container. If you want to learn more on how to RECYCLE WELL, we offer 2 options:
