St. Paul plans to expand and improve its recycling services in 2017, starting with wheeled and lidded carts to replace the currently used tubs, and also collecting food scraps and food-soiled paper.
The city’s Public Works Department announced Thursday that it is seeking bids from companies to provide more convenient recycling services for houses and apartments, city buildings and public spaces.
Contracts for most of the services would be awarded next spring, with the new system to begin by Jan. 1, 2017. A separate contract for organics recycling will be put out for bids next spring.
