Minneapolis Recycling 101

I’ve been wondering how to recycle some items I have around the house. You know, that old fax machine, some dry ice, my dead cat, my gun, and my yogurt tubs. Fortunately, the City of Minneapolis has a comprehensive list that describes how to recycle and/or dispose of these items!

But I want to take it one step further by becoming a Zero Hero. Minneapolis’ solid waste and recycling website reminds us that the average household sends one ton of solid waste to the landfill every year. Instead of throwing out my dead cat, why not stuff it and set it on the front porch? I’ll reuse those yogurt tubs. I’ll donate the fax machine to a nonprofit. I’ll find a creative way to reuse my gun!

Seriously, Minneapolis has a comprehensive system for recycling, with a ton of useful and detailed information. It’s worth a look.

    Dead cat. Heh! But I can only reuse so many butter tubs.

    That’s great info to have.
