Sustainable Eden Prairie is an ongoing effort focusing on education and implementation of sustainable practices to protect the environment and natural resources our community enjoys.
Building upon the success of the 20-40-15 initiative, the City is leading by example and providing a foundation for residents and businesses to carry out sustainable practices in four areas — energy, landscape, waste and water.
About one-third of our trash is organic material, including food, food-soiled paper and certified compostable products. Organics recycling and home composting reduces our trash and puts it to better use. Several organics recycling drop-off facilities are available to Hennepin County residents and curbside organics recycling will be available throughout the County by January 2022.
