Week 3: Recycling
Recycling is a simple way to make a positive impact on our environment. By properly disposing of recyclable materials such as plastic, paper and metal, we can reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills and conserve valuable resources.
In addition to recycling, reducing waste is also important. Consider purchasing products with minimal packaging, bring reusable bags and containers when shopping, and compost your food waste. These small actions can significantly reduce the amount of waste produced by our community.
Did you know the Coon Rapids Recycling Center takes many hard-to-recycle items like organic food waste, appliances, books, clothing and electronics? Learn more at coonrapidsmn.gov/recycling.
