The days between Thanksgiving and New Years are when we produce the most waste. There is trash from the holiday parties and get-togethers, waste from the packaging around the gifts we give, and more food waste.

  •  Attempt to not use gift wrap, use alternatives:
    • Newspapers
    • Old Road Maps
    • Cloth
    • Other items that become part of the gift
  • Borrow Recycling Bins for your parties and family events, to make recycling easier.  Call Property + Environmental Resources at 507-304-4251 to make arrangements.

Below is a resource guide on how to properly dispose of holiday waste items:
