Community Forums on Recycling

Hennepin County is in the process of transforming solid waste management! 

Recent changes in technology along with a growing interest in organics composting have provided a good opportunity for the county to review their current solid waste management options. 

This discussion will likely include the development of significant new goals for increasing recycling and composting. 

In an effort to gather information on what county residents feel can be done to meet these new goals, the County will be holding three community forums.  Residents are invited to attend and participate in a discussion on how to move towards these new goals.

Call 612-348-4168 to RSVP and participate in one of these forums:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hamel Community Building, 3200 Mill Drive, Medina
  • Thursday, Feb. 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Bloomington Civic Plaza, 1800 West Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington
  • Tuesday, March 8 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Crystal Community Center, 4800 Douglas Drive N., Crystal

All participants who RSVP will receive an reusable cloth bag!
