Fall Recycling/Cleanup Events in September

By choosing to recycle, we reduce consumption of fossil fuel, create jobs in Anoka County and Minnesota, conserve natural resources and create environmental benefits. For information about recycling opportunities in your community, check out the Anoka County Residential Recycling Opportunities webpage.

  • Since it takes less energy to manufacture products from recycled materials than it does to manufacture the  same product from virgin (new) materials, recycling decreases demand for fossil fuels and increases our energy independence.
  • Recycling contributes to our economy — approximately 20,000 jobs in Minnesota are supported by the industry. These jobs pay an estimated $760 million in wages and add nearly $3 billion to Minnesota’s economy.
  • Recycling, and buying recycled products, helps keep Minnesota’s lakes and rivers clean. Manufacturing products from recycled materials generates less water pollution than manufacturing from virgin (new) materials.

Your individual recycling efforts do make a difference! Prepare for the winter months by cleaning out the garage and basement.  To help you, there are community recycling days held in September:
