  • Recycling to be required in commercial buildings starting in 2016

    • Share:
    In 2014, the Minnesota Legislature expanded recycling requirements to include commercial buildings. Owners with commercial buildings in the seven-county metro area – that also generate four cubic yards or more of trash per week – must be recycling at least three materials by January 1, 2016.
    Who must collect recycling? Property owners with commercial buildings (including multi-family buildings) located in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott or Washington counties.
    What must be collected? A minimum of three broad materials must be collected for recycling. Possible material types include paper, cans, glass, plastic, metal, cardboard or organics. Single-sort recycling collection with 3+ materials included meet the requirement.
    Businesses can get funds, recycling bins and advice from Hennepin County
