Recycling and Sustainability
The Recycling Center is CLOSED through April 10 due to the Governor’s Executive Order surrounding public health concerns related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Staff will continue to monitor local, state, and national recommendations surrounding the issue to determine the best date of opening. For all updates regarding City of Coon Rapids service changes, visit the special COVID-19 web page.
If you use the organics program, please continue to bring your materials during the facility closure. The organics bin has been moved outside of the gate for easy access. Please use social distancing measures and respect others in front of you when dropping off your materials. If you need bags, we can send them through the mail. Call, we will process your credit card over the phone and mail them out. Thank you!
About the Recycling Program
The Recycling Division is actively involved in recycling as mandated by the state’s Select Committee on Recycling and Environment (SCORE). This program is unique in that it is city operated, but funded from a State SCORE grant. Our focus is on residential and small business recycling and our programs are set up to help each with every aspect of recycling and waste reduction.

2020 has brought about some new pricing changes at the facility.
See the list of acceptable recyclables for the latest information.
You may see some changes to the layout of the Recycling Center. In early January we will be accepting mattresses, appliances and electronics daily. We will no longer host special events for these items. Our site is not able to supply assistance in unloading/loading your items. If you need help we ask you bring it with you. For those requiring help, we will gladly refer you to those resources. This is due to the constant changes within the marketplace and our need to adapt. Our staff will be happy to assist you with these new changes!
