The commercial sector generates more than half of the total waste in Dakota County, and nearly two-thirds of the waste from businesses, non-profits, and other organizations is recyclable.
Commercial building owners in the seven-county metro area, including Dakota County that generate four cubic yards or more of trash per week must recycle at least three materials.
A strong recycling program conserves natural resources, reduces environmental pollution, can save your organization money, and demonstrates your commitment to sustainability and the community.
Businesses, including non-profit organizations and multi-unit dwellings, can get funding assistance, free bin labels and free technical assistance through the Dakota County Business Recycling Program.
