The recycling process
The City contracts with Eureka Recycling to sort the recycling we pick up from your home. At its facility, sorters remove items that should not have been put in your recycling cart. They then sort the recyclables into 15 different categories and compress them into bales. Eureka sends the bales to companies that turn them into new products.
- 98% of your recyclables stay in North America.
- 94% of your recyclables stay in the upper Midwest.
- 74% of your recyclables are made into new products in Minnesota.
