Starting August 1st, the Wedge is partnering with the Lowry Hill East Neighborhood Assoc. to offer compost drop off for the neighborhood!
The City of Minneapolis offers several organics drop-off locations around the city for folks who do not have access to organics recycling at their home. None of the current drop-offs are very convenient for folks living in or near the Wedge neighborhood, so LHENA reached out to have the Wedge be a drop-off site.
To sign up for access, go to http://www.thewedge.org/organics.html
The six bins, located in the south parking lot, have locks on them. Everyone must sign-up at http://www.thewedge.org/organics.html and you will receive the code. The drop-off is open to anyone: Wedge customers, neighborhood residents and staff are all welcome to use it. Once a week, material in the bins is picked up by the City haulers just like they would for residents, and transported to a commercial compost site where it will be broken down and eventually turned into rich soil-building compost.
The Wedge sells compost bags in the general merchandise section. Happy composting!
