Block events and parades go greener in Minneapolis

The City Council voted unanimously Friday, July 20 to require all large block events and all parades and races on Minneapolis streets to recycle. The changes are designed to reduce the amount of trash being generated at these events.

Beginning Jan. 1 2013, organizers of any block event with more than 2,500 in attendance and any parade or race that uses City streets will need to have a written recycling plan for the collection of all paper, cardboard, plastic, glass and metal containers.

Some parades and races are already providing recycling services. Also, most of the same vendors that offer solid waste services at events are offering recycling services as well.

For more information on recycling, go to www.minneapolismn.gov/solid-waste.
