Reducing Your Waste

A Ton of Trash

Each Minnesotan creates more than 2,000 pounds of garbage every year. When you avoid making garbage in the first place, you don't have to worry about disposing of waste or recycling it later.

Fix-It Clinics

Get household items fixed for free and learn valuable repair skills at an upcoming Fix-It Clinic, hosted by Ramsey County. At Fix-It Clinics, residents bring in small household appliances, clothing, electronics, mobile devices and more to receive free guided assistance from volunteers with repair skills to disassemble, troubleshoot and fix items. Fix-It Clinics build community connections and reduce the number of repairable objects that are thrown in the trash. Visit the Ramsey County website for more information and for a list of upcoming Fix-It Clinics.
