Minnesota’s recycling rates are among the highest in the country. Let’s keep it that way!
When it comes to recycling, Minnesota is already doing some smart things. Success with single-sort curbside programs is just one example. Recycle Smart Minnesota is a coalition of citizens, businesses, and community organizations working for sustainable recycling solutions. We oppose recent efforts to implement a 10¢ bottle deposit in the state.
Join us and help protect our recycling success story.
