Recycling and Sustainability
NO Plastic Bags

STOP!
Keep Plastic Bags OUT of the Bin

Plastic Bags are the #1 Contaminate
 

Plastic bags create a real tangle when you put them in your curbside recycling bin!

Don't put recyclables in plastic bags. Instead, empty recycling loose into your cart and bring plastic bags to the Coon Rapids Recycling Center or many local retailers.
 
Plastic bags are the number one contaminate collected with recycling. The bags get stuck around the spokes of sorting machines and can jam up and break the equipment.
