Plastic recycling expands at The Recycling Zone
Dakota County is making it easier to recycle more by expanding the list of items accepted at The Recycling Zone.

Besides basic plastic bottles and jugs, The Recycling Zone is also accepting yogurt, pudding, and fruit cups; margarine, cottage cheese, and other plastic tubs; and produce, deli, and take-out containers. Cartons such as juice boxes and soup, wine and milk cartons are also being accepted for free from residents and businesses.
