Minneapolis is dumping its former recycling provider for a more localized and sustainable option.
Eureka Recycling, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit recycling company, will replace Waste Management as the city of Minneapolis’ recycling service. The contract begins next winter.
Minneapolis is currently in the first extension year of its contract with Waste Management, the largest waste removal service in the nation. The city originally signed a three-year contract with the corporation, with the option of two one-year extensions, Minneapolis Director of Waste and Recycling David Herberholz said. The new contract with Eureka will be a five-year contract, he said.
