Start a Business Recycling Program

Hennepin County Environmental Partners

Hennepin County recently recognized its 2014 Environmental Partners for their efforts to recycle and divert organic waste from the trash through composting, sending food scraps to local farmers to feed animals, or by donating edible food. By creating and sustaining strong recycling programs, these 40 businesses help conserve natural resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and support the local economy. Hennepin County offers grants, signage, technical assistance and case studies to help business and organizations start or improve recycling programs. Learn more about starting a business recycling program here; more about the Environmental Partners Program here.
