Beginning the week of November 26, portions of Greater Longfellow will beging receiving blue single-sort recycling carts, allowing for the collection of all recyclable materials in a single bin. Areas marked in blue in the map below will receive their single-sort carts during the last week of November. The remainder of Greater Longfellow will have access to single-sort recycling beginning in Spring of next year. See the City of Minneapolis website for more details and a helpful FAQ.
Once you receive your new recycling cart, you are free to use your old recycling bins as you please, such as for storage in the garage. However, if they are left in the garbage collection area, City crews will collect them to be recycled and will not be returned.
