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.
Know what to recycle, what to throw – and where.
Have you ever looked at a box or plastic container and wondered, "Can this go in my recycling bin?" Entire loads of recyclables need to be tossed as trash because well-meaning recyclers put the wrong things in their recycling bins. If you’re unsure if an item is clean enough or recyclable, simply throw it in the trash.
What about electronics?
Old electronics typically contain hazardous materials that can leak into the environment if not properly disposed of. Check out Hennepin County’s Green Disposal Guide for options to recycle your electronics.
