Curbside Organic recycling for all residents. Similar to Loretto, Maple Plain, Medicine Lake, Medina, St. Bonifacius, St. Louis Park, and Wayzata, and Minneapolis. Backyard composting is great but not many do this, upkeep can be difficult, and you're limited on what you can compost.

I think more should be done to encourage composting on private properties. I don't believe that sending trucks around to collect biodegradable material makes sense.

I compost but it has it limits. Commercial composting would divert a lot more from the landfill then backyard composting. I would rather see composting along side recycling and reduced trash pick-up. Plus a lot of people will not do backyard composting.

According to the 8/9/18 Sun Current, the "city" is pushing for organic recycling. Oh, great, now we can have even MORE ugly containers sitting out in front of residents' homes 24/7. There is a city ordinance against leaving these unsightly containers out in full view, but it is painfully obvious that City Hall has no interest in enforcing this beautification ordinance. And, now, they want to add still ANOTHER ugly container ? We have been organic recyclers for more than 40 years, and no one in our neighborhood, or passersby, have to stare at an ugly container. The containers we do have are tucked away in our garage, except on pickup day, like THEY SHOULD BE.
