Tips and tricks to Recycle Everywhere in your home
Remembering to recycle everything from every room in your house can sometimes be challenging, especially when you’re just trying to get the laundry done or get ready for work. About half of home recyclables never make it to the recycling bin. We do well recycling kitchen items, but our bathrooms, laundry rooms and home offices have lots of recyclables we throw out. Expand your recycling habit by using convenient recycling bins and signage and mix in a little education and fun.

Links for Hard-to-Dispose-of Items
Give your items to retailers
Help reduce waste by donating new or used items to participating retailers. Find retailers or search by item using the county's Choose to Reuse Online Directory.
Dispose hazardous products and other hard-to-dispose-of items
You can safely dispose of hazardous products free of charge at Hennepin County drop-off facilities or collection events. You can get rid of bulky items such as appliances, mattresses and tires for a fee at drop-off facilities. Learn more about drop-off facilities and collection events.
Dispose of yard and tree waste
Yard and tree waste is banned from your household garbage. You can dispose of yard waste by composting it in your backyard, checking with your city or hauler to see if they offer curbside pickup, or bringing it to a compost site.
Dispose of batteries
All battery types are accepted at drop-off containers located in libraries, city halls and community centers throughout the county. Batteries also can be brought to county drop-off facilities. Learn more about battery recycling.
