Recycling program at Inver Hills

Inver Hills is launching a more robust recycling program in partnership with Dakota County.


  • Inver Hills and DCTC were awarded a grant to help facilitate sustainability programs
  • Dual bins are located around campus | One for recycling, one for trash
  • Recycling bins are single stream, meaning all recyclables go in the same container
  • Signs on the bins will guide you on what to recycle and what to trash
  • Future phases will include compost recycling
Recycling bin


Recycling is earth-friendly, responsible, and required by law for businesses. Dakota County is mandating hat recycling bins and trash be located close to each other. This makes recycling the easy choice.

The new dual bins were purchased as part of a $60,000 sustainability grant from Dakota County. They have been placed in hallways and shared office areas.
