The purpose of this questionnaire is to gather information from all the Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) in the State of Minnesota about what they accept/don’t accept and what kind of contaminates are causing problems etc. The data will be used by the MPCA and the Recycling Education Committee (REC) to better direct communications efforts. The REC is a group made up of hauler, city, county, state and MRF representatives from all over Minnesota. REC’s goal is to provide consistent, clear messages for residents and businesses across the state about what is and is not accepted in their recycling bins. The information you provide will lead to a cleaner, better recycling stream. We estimate that it will take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
We know the recycling world is changing very quickly and so we have set the form up so you can go back into it any time and update the information without having to re-do it each time; just change what needs to be changed and re-submit it.
