Recycling Tour

Recycling Facility Tours

In December 2016, the City entered into a 5 year contract with local zero waste non-profit Eureka Recycling for the processing and sale of recyclable materials. For the health and safety of residents and staff at the recycling facility, all on-site tours for 2020 have been cancelled.

In lieu of offering physical tours, we invite you to take a virtual tour of Eureka Recycling's facility. Watch their Story of a Cereal Box video to learn how people and equipment work together to sort your recyclables back into the various commodities (paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, steel, and aluminum) to be made into something new.

Contact the City's Recycling Coordinator if you'd like to arrange a virtual training to watch the video and/or have a discussion about waste, recycling, and organics recycling in Minneapolis.
