New Date for Organics Recycling!
Solid Waste and Recycling in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Armatage Neighborhood Association are proud to announce the opening of residential organics drop-offs at Armatage Park. The drop-off will be open beginning on Tuesday October 14, 2014.
Residential organics include all food waste (including food items that you should not compost in a backyard bin such as meat, bones and dairy), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds, filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and popsicle sticks. Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted. Residents must drop-off their organic materials in a compostable bag (either paper or certified compostable plastic). Larger items such as pizza boxes and wax coated boxes do not need to be bagged. The drop-off is open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost. For the first six weeks to two months, the drop-off will have the following designated delivery times when volunteers will be on site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather some information from residents that will be used to help craft the message for the future city-wide organics collection program.
· Tuesdays 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
· Saturdays 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Alert to Residents

On May 26, 2012 at approximately 1:45 p.m. a suspicious vehicle was seen in an alley near 49th Street W. between Penn and Queen Avenues A faded red, older model sedan, possible a Honda Accord or similar pulled up next to an 11 year old female who was taking a walk.

The area was checked but officers were unable to locate the vehicle or suspect.
The following are some tips for parents when talking to their children regarding strangers:
1. Teach your child(ren) your address and phone number, including the area code. Instruct your child(ren) on how to use the telephone to call home, and in an emergency, 911.
2. Keep an updated file on your child, including a photograph and physical description. If your child is under two years of age, you should update the information at least four times each year.
3. Pay close attention to the clothing your child is wearing each day and never display your child's name on his/or clothes or books. Children will often respond to strangers who call them by name.
