Mill City Farmers Market
will become the first zero-waste market in
Minnesota, thanks to Eureka Recycling's "Make Dirt, Not Waste"
composting program. Join Eureka Recycling and the City of Minneapolis Saturday at 11:00 a.m.
at the Mill City Farmers market to celebrate the
zero-waste and composting movement.
The expert recyclers at Eureka will announce the partnership on the steps that lead from the market to the Guthrie theater. They'll talk about how Mill City Market is a leader in reduction, recycling, and composting, and offer easy guides for following these practices at your business and your home. Want some compost of your own? Sign up for the Minnesota Energy Challenge and take some home for free.
So what exactly will the market be composting? And how can it result in zero waste? All food scraps--including meat and dairy products--will be composted instead of stuffed into a landfill. In addition, the market will turn paper napkins, cups, plates, towels, waxed paper, compostable utensils, and more into dirt for growing more healthy, local food.
