These sorting instructions apply to apartment buildings, townhomes, and condominiums with eleven or more units in Lauderdale, Roseville, and Saint Paul, for which Eureka Recycling provides recycling services.
For buildings with ten or fewer units, please see the curbside recycling sorting instructions.
You can help make recycling a success at your building by sorting your materials into these two categories:
Include phone books with your papers.
Envelopes with windows or metal clasps are OK.
Notebook paper, spiral notebooks (with metal binding), folders, and computer paper are OK.
Shredded paper should be put in a paper bag-- do not use plastic bags.
Pop and beer boxes, too!
Flatten cardboard to 3 feet x 3 feet or smaller and place between the recycling carts.
