compostThe Folwell Neighborhood in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling, are proud to announce the opening of a residential organics drop-off at Folwell Park on August 19, 2015. Residents interested in participating are encouraged to stop by the park anytime between 6 -8 p.m. on August 19th to learn about organics recycling and get their questions answered by the City’s Recycling Coordinator.  Bring your organics as the drop-off carts will be on site for the meeting!

 The drop-off will be open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost.

  • We want folks to sign up online to participate.
  • When they sign-up they’ll get a welcome email and after the first six weeks,
  • We’ll use the email list to send out the code to the locks to the participants.
  • We also will use the email to provide updates on how the program is going and in the event of contamination, as a way to communicate with residents on why a particular item cannot be placed in the organics.

For the first several weeks, the drop-off will be open Tuesdays evenings (4 – 7 p.m.) and Saturday mornings (9a.m. – 12p.m.). Volunteers will be on site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather some information from residents using the drop off.  After volunteers are no longer needed, those who sign up to participate for the drop-off will be given the code to the locks.
