Coming to a Park Near You

Sports tournaments, picnics, walks, playgrounds, nature: what else is in our parks? Recycling! The parks department in Burnsville is excited to announce the introduction of more than 130 new recycling bins in almost 25 parks in order to make public space recycling more available and convenient.

Items that are accepted in these bin include plastic bottles, cans, cardboard, and paper. But if you forget, the new bins come with picture-based labels which will show you exactly what should go in each bin. See for yourself on your next visit to the parks.
