Recycling and Sustainability

2016 Calendar of Events now available here.
About the Recycling Program

The Recycling Division is actively involved in recycling as mandated by the state‚Äôs Select Committee on Recycling and Environment (SCORE). This program is unique in that it is city operated, but funded from a State SCORE grant. Our focus is on residential and small business recycling and our programs are set up to help each with every aspect of recycling and waste reduction. Our goal is to provide residents and small businesses with as many recycling resources as possible for alternatives to trash.

Stay Informed
Citizens can stay informed about our programs through the City newsletter, "The Coon Rapids Connection", cable television shows (CTN News and CTN News Spotlight), and here on our website. You can also sign up for email updates featuring program details and useful tips on energy savings, waste reduction, and more! Sign up for Notify Me here to receive updates.
