Increased recycling and reuse of materials from the waste stream not only reduces waste sent to landfills, but also results in cleaner water, less littering and increased local job opportunities.
By engaging and educating the community about the importance of recycling and the broad range of materials that can be recycled, reduced and/or reused, we can protect the natural resources our community enjoys.
The City is planning for the future management of solid waste, organics and recycling in accordance with its 10-year solid waste management plan (SWMP).
The SWMP provides a framework for implementing new recycling and organics management goals imposed by Minnesota state law and Hennepin County policies.
Beyond organics and multifamily recycling initiatives, Eden Prairie’s SWMP provides goals and policies for public education, traditional curbside recycling, yard waste management, drop-off events and solid waste collection improvements.
