Business Recycling

Many businesses are recycling bottles, cans, paper (office and mixed, including junk mail), corrugated cardboard, newspapers, magazines, and other recyclable materials.

Things to Know

  • Your business may need to design a system to collect the recyclable materials.
  • Businesses without regular recycling service can self-haul recyclables to their nearest free recycling center / drop off site.
    • Moorhead businesses should use the MinnKota Recycling's drop off at: 1321 1st Avenue N.
      Moorhead, MN 56560
    • Contact your commercial waste hauler or a local recycling company for recycling services available.
