Neighborhood Organics Recycling Workshop

Join your neighbors at the Field Regina Northrop Neighborhood Group’s summer organics recycling workshop on Tuesday, July 17 at 7 p.m. at McRae Park. Organics recycling collection provides a convenient way to compost food scraps and leftovers, food-soiled papers (such as paper towels and pizza boxes) and much more. There is no additional charge for residents who live in single-family homes, duplexes, and triplexes to sign up for a green cart through the City of Minneapolis. And there are free local drop-off locations for anyone who lives in an apartment building. Your household may also save money each month if you can switch to a smaller garbage cart due to participating in organics recycling.

Thanks to support from Hennepin County’s Green Partners Grow grant and the City of Minneapolis, attendees will be able to pick up a free countertop organics bin, compostable bags, container labels, and a lawn sign to show their organics recycling pride. Whether you’re new to organics recycling, interested but not sure how to make it work at your house, looking for tips and tricks, or want to get involved by volunteering to help more of your neighbors get started, you won’t want to miss this workshop.

Volunteers needed: We need volunteers to help more of our Field Regina Northrop neighbors get started with organics recycling! We’ll cover a few quick and easy ways to do this on July 17. If you’re not able to attend the workshop but want to help out, please email frnng@frnng.org (or greening@frnng.org ).
