Minneapolis plans for expanded organics recycling

Body: 

Minneapolis is laying the groundwork to expand organics recycling citywide by next year, although the city likely won’t meet a Jan. 1 deadline set by Hennepin County.

It would cost at least $3.5 million per year to run the program, David Herberholz, the city’s director of solid waste and recycling, told a City Council committee Tuesday. For Minneapolis residents, that translates to a hike in the $17.60 monthly fee for waste and recycling services.
