Who What When Where Why & How 

Here's What's Happening

December 5-9 is Recycling Week

Remember to have your cart at the curb by 6:30 a.m. Crews have until 6 p.m. to finish collection. Make sure your cart is at least three feet away from any objects such as another cart or a mailbox. Place your cart in your driveway or on the boulevard with the handle facing away from the street. Do not put carts in the street. 

Have material loose in your cart, never in bags. Plastic bags are thrown in the trash unopened at the sorting facility. Material in paper bags can get stuck inside during compaction on the truck. Meaning it can't be success- fully separated at the sorting facility.

Check out our new app: We have a better way to get recycling reminders. Check out our new Brooklyn Park/HRG Recycling App. Use the app to send yourself reminders of recycling day or send reminders to your calendar. Also use the app to look up whether to donate, recycle or trash an item. You can request a bigger or second cart using the Need Help feature of the app. Use the More feature to use app in Spanish, Vietnamese, French or Russian. Find the app in the App Store or Google Play (links below).
