greencart.gifThe Southeast Como Improvement Association (SECIA) in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling are proud to host a Residential Organics Drop-Off at Van Cleve Park. This nearby drop-off allows residents to drastically reduce the amount of trash they create, and recycle organic material that cannot be composted in backyard bins.

Minneapolis residents will be able to drop-off their organic materials at Van Cleve Park located at 901 15th Ave SE. Residential organics include ALL food waste, food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds, filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and popsicle sticks. Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted. Residents must drop-off their organic materials in a compostable bag (either paper or certified compostable plastic). Larger items such as pizza boxes and wax coated boxes do not need to be bagged. Residents can also bring pumpkins and other unwanted organic decorations (No yard waste) to the drop off. Linked here is detail list of what can and cannot be included.

The fall 2014 training period at Van Cleve Park has ended. Going forth, residents who want to sign up to participate in the organics drop-off will receive the code to the padlocks and can drop-off when their schedule allows. The containers are located at the west end of the parking lot. .
