HERC burning request dropped

Hennepin County drops request to increase burning at HERC


After four years of squabbling with Minneapolis, Hennepin County is dropping its longstanding request to increase the amount of garbage it can burn at the Hennepin Energy Recovery Center (HERC).

Instead, the county board has proposed to withhold funds for Minneapolis’ recycling program unless it institutes an organic waste collection service for every residential building containing between one and eight units by Jan. 1, 2015.
