Moorhead residents should stop putting glass into blue recycling bins

Post Date:02/28/2023 1:05 pm

Effective immediately, City of Moorhead residents should stop putting glass into blue recycling bins.

Why the change? According to Minnkota Recycling – which handles the City of Moorhead’s recycling after it is collected – glass has become too expensive to recycle, creates safety issues in the recycling process, and contaminates the recycling stream.

There are two options for residents:

  1. Take glass to glass-only dumpsters (Woodlawn Point, 418 Elm St; Public Works Shop, 700 15 Ave N; or the Resource Recovery Center, 3322 15 Ave N)
  2. Put it in your regular gray trash bin.

Thank you for helping keep glass out of the recycling stream!

If you have questions, please contact the City of Moorhead Public Works Department at 218.299.5347.

Effectively immediately, NO glass in recycling bins!
