Recycling Tips

As you know, K-Lakes and Crow Wing Power are "Going Green"! Doug Morris, Waste Management Director for Crow Wing County explains that our local recyclers want paper/cardboard presented in one of two ways--either "Single Sort", which means paper/cardboard can be in one container, with the recycler addressing the recycling at their own Materials Recovery Facility (MRF). The other way is that they like the recycling materials already separated prior to their pick-up. He mentioned, in particular, that pizza boxes cannot be recycled, as they typically contain food. In Crow Wing County, Brainerd, Baxter, and Breezy Point have curb-side recycling pick- up. For more information on recycling, you can call 218-828-4392.
