Recycling at your business – It's state law
The State of Minnesota has amended its recycling laws (Statute 115A.151), requiring most metro businesses (NAICS 42-81) that generate at least 4 cubic yards of trash per week (and all other businesses in that same building) to recycle at least three types of materials, such as paper, glass, plastic, metal and organics by Jan. 1, 2016. The property owner is responsible for compliance with the law.

How Plymouth businesses can recycle

  • All licensed haulers in Plymouth are required to offer recycling services to their business customers. View a list of licensed haulers. It is often cheaper to recycle materials than to throw them away, and recycled material is exempt from Minnesota's solid waste tax on garbage collection service.
  • The Plymouth recycling drop-off center, 14900 23rd Ave. N., is available to small businesses.
  • The county and city can help you establish your recycling program and provide free resources, such as signs, stickers, grants and assistance. More information is available from Hennepin County
Help for businesses is available
