Yard Waste in the Recycling Carts? Oh no!

Post Date:10/08/2019
Only plastics, cardboard, paper, glass, and cans please. There’s been an uptick in contamination of Moorhead’s recycling collections lately, specifically, individuals putting yard waste in the blue recycling carts. Yard waste is recyclable but the processing is very different. Consumer recycling equipment cannot handle this contamination. It damages equipment and, unfortunately, the materials end up in the landfill.

For a refresher on how to dispose of recycling consumer items and yard waste, please refer to the recycling and yard waste sections of our website.

We’d love it if you could share this information with your neighbors and friends! Thanks for your cooperation.
