Here are some important items to remember when using the residential organics drop-offs:
- Residential organics include: all food scraps (including food you should not compost in a backyard bin like meats, bones, and dairy products), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds, filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and wooden freezer pop sticks. Click here for a detailed Yes/No Acceptability list.
- Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted.
- Organics must be contained in a compostable bag (either paper or certified compostable plastic) to be brought to the drop-off site. Larger items such as pizza boxes, wax coated boxes and paper egg cartons do not need to be bagged.
- If you have friends or family who want to participate, please have them visit our Organics Drop-Off webpage and sign up to participate. (www.minneapolismn.gov/organics)
