Minneapolis is rolling out one-sort recycling in two phases; if you do not get the new cart with this rollout, you will begin when you get a cart next year in the second phase. A letter with instructions will come to your home about a week before you get the cart. While routes and schedules won’t change, the time the truck comes may change. Make sure to have your recycling at your collection point by 6 a.m. on your recycling day. You may keep your old bin for other uses or leave it at the curb or alley and city crews will recycle it. Since routes run street by street (and alley by alley) rather than by neighborhood or quadrant, the routes chosen for the first phase are all over the city. This is the most efficient way to roll out the new carts and keep your service high during the transition. Switching to one-sort recycling will not change the amount you pay for your recycling and garbage pickup. For more information, visit www.minneapolismn.gov/onesort.
