Mayor Chris Coleman, together with the Saint Paul City Council and officials from Ramsey County and Eureka Recycling, announced the beginning of an expanded, single-sort recycling program taking effect in Saint Paul today that will make recycling in Saint Paul more convenient than ever before.
The new program, called "All In," begins today. Saint Paul residents are now able to recycle most food and beverage containers numbered 1, 2, 4, 5 and 7 in addition to number 1 and 2 plastic bottles already in effect. The new program also switches to a single-sort recycling model, allowing residents to put all their recyclable material -- plastics, papers, glass bottles and others -- in one container.
Three days after the Downtown Task Force found that "momentum is building" in Saint Paul, Mayor Chris Coleman emphasized the importance of growing that momentum to create an even better future for Saint Paul at his ninth State of the City address on Monday, March 31st.
