A Zero Waste Conversation: Recycling as an Economic Development Tool

A Zero Waste Conversation:
Recycling as an Economic Development Tool

Wednesday, Feb. 17, 6:30 p.m.

Northeast Library, 2200 Central Avenue NE

Waste reduction isn’t just good for the environment; additionally it’s economically beneficial. Join Council Member Kevin Reich and Eureka Recycling for a community conversation about how recycling can function as part of a strong local economy and jobs creator. Some of the guest presenters will include Eastside Food Co-op, who has achieved close to 90% waste diversion and partnered with the City to pilot plastics recycling; Better Futures Enterprises, whose unique recycling programs provide education and job training while diverting hundreds of tons of materials from landfills; and Ward One-based Momentum Enterprises, which empowers people facing employment barriers and partners with the City of Minneapolis on mattress recycling.

We hope you’ll join us for this timely community conversation. For further information, contact Lisa Brock at lisa.brock@minneapolismn.gov or 612-673-2201.

Already closed to motorized traffic, the St. Anthony Parkway Bridge over Northtown Yard closes to all traffic beginning Monday, November 2. The closure includes the California Street NE and Main Street intersections on St. Anthony Parkway. Both intersections will be fenced off until the project is completed.

Please consult the St. Anthony Parkway Bridge detour map for pedestrian, bike, motorized traffic and bus detour routes.
