Welcome to Lynnhurst

THE BEST OF SOUTHWEST MINNEAPOLIS — brought to you by the Lynnhurst Neighborhood Association (LYNAS)

February 1st SIGN-UP DEADLINE to receive your organics recycling cart this spring

organics bins

The second phase of the City’s new organics recycling program kicks off this spring with cart deliveries for the remainder of Minneapolis single family homes, duplexes, and triplexes.  Request your green organics recycling collection cart to start composting food waste (including meat, bones and dairy), compostable paper products, food-soiled papers (non-recyclable papers like napkins, pizza boxes), and much more.  Carts and collection service are available at no extra fee.

Click HERE or call 612-673-2917 to register by FEBRUARY 1st to be included in the spring cart delivery.  Anyone who signs up after that date can still participate but will have to wait until at least July for their cart.  If you live in an apartment building you may not be eligible for collection services but you can bring your compostables to one of seven free organicsrecycling drop-off sites.

Not sure if you’re planning to participate?

Go ahead and request a cart, then come to the Lynnhurst-Tangletown Organics Recycling Kick-Off Event, Saturday March 19th from 10am-2pm at the Lynnhurst Community Center (1345 W Minnehaha Parkway). Enjoy free pizza, games, children’s activities, demonstrations, and tips and tricks from your neighbors that make organics recycling a breeze.  Stop by briefly or stay to catch a joint presentation from the City and our local commercial composting facility, SET.  The first 200 attendees can pick up free compostable bags and everyone can enter to win a door prize.  SAVE THE DATE and come get all your questions answered.
