In the recent Kenny newsletter article “The Do’s of Recycling”, we noted that paper egg cartons are not recyclable. This is true- they cannot be recycled in the regular blue recycling bins because their fiber has been processed too many times. However, we should have noted that they CAN be composted in your green organics bin if you participate in the city organics program.
Sorry for any confusion.

Trail and access improvements near NE Calhoun, SE Harriet and Lake Street will begin construction next spring.
Preferred concepts for the Calhoun-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project have been posted online. These concepts were shaped by public feedback garnered from the Calhoun-Harriet Master Plan, two public open houses and hundreds of online survey responses.
The concepts will be brought into final design this winter and construction will begin in the spring. Please check the Calhoun-Harriet Trail and Access Improvements project page for more details.
