Recycling at Events

Recycling at Events
Festivals, parties, and events can create a lot of trash. Make a change at your next get-together by recycling.

Recycling Requirements
Starting in 2021, event centers, community festivals, fairs, sporting events, and concerts will be required to recycle. Certain large events with food scraps will need to collect organics from non-public areas starting in 2024. Information about these changes can be found here

Event Recycling Help
Dakota County offers free resources for events to help meet the recycling and compost requirements. Free resources include recycling, organics, and trash bins, signs and bags.

Please contact the recycling coordinator, Cassandra Johnson, at (651) 552-4118 about utilizing these resources. Information about low waste events and the resources offered by Dakota County can be found here.
