Confused about what you can and cannot recycle?

Hennepin County is making it easier by increasing the plastics you can recycle for residential curbside recycling service.

Effective Jan. 1, 2012, garbage haulers are required to accept the following in Eden Prairie:
  • No. 1 through No. 5 food-grade plastics
  • Aseptic containers such as juice boxes
  • Gable-top containers such as milk boxes
However, the following items must still be recycled at a Hennepin County drop-off facility:
  • Scrap metal
  • Household hazardous waste
  • Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFLs)
Some haulers have started accepting additional plastics. Contact your hauler for a complete list of recyclable items.
