Draft of New Recycling Label
How do you figure out what goes in your recycling cart? You might look it up on our website www.brooklynpark.org/recycling. Maybe you keep our annual calendar on the fridge. You can always call us at 763-493-8006. Perhaps you look at the label on the lid of your recycling cart.
Just like with your favorite brands, labels need to be updated and we need your help to update the labels on recycling carts. The old labels with the smiling recycling cart were designed about 15 years ago. Since then we've added new materials to what we accept. The labels also use only text to describe what goes in the cart. Not everyone reads English well.
Not everything that’s recyclable goes in your cart. That’s why we hold two Special Materials Drop-off Days each year. On Saturday, April 30 bring your items to the Operations and Maintenance Facility, 8300 Noble Avenue between 8:00 a.m. and 3 p.m. (hint come later when there’s not much of a line – or even no line at all). For a list of the items we’ll take and fees charged visit www.brooklynpark.org/recycling-events.
New this spring we’ll have book recycling and compost for pick up. Also our charity partner Bridging will be moving into their new and bigger facility and won’t be available to take your donations. They’ll return for the fall event October 9.
