Earth Day 2020

Happy Earth Day! 

Every day is Earth Day at Dick’s Sanitation and Recycle Minnesota. We are committed to the environment as we “Live Green”. Every day we are turning the material we collect into a resource and making sustainability a core part of our business. 

  • Renewable Energy – Not all waste goes to waste. Our disposal sites turn waste into electricity.
  • Organic and Yard Waste – Every season we have collection programs to recycle organics and yard waste material.
  • Single Stream Recycling – We collect all material in one bin and then sort it at Recycle Minnesota. The material is separated into Fiber/Plastic/Metal/Glass for reuse into products such as cardboard boxes, napkins, furniture, carpets, beverage and food cans, glass bottles and quartz countertops.
  • Fleet Alternative Fuels – With 44 natural gas powered trucks we continue invest into our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. 

On the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day we ask that you commit to “Going Beyond Green” and make everyday Earth Day.
