Cottage Grove City Council Meeting ~ March 15, 2023
Updated: Apr 16
Washington County Commissioner Karla Bigham attended the Cottage Grove City Council meeting on March 15, 2023, and announced that curbside organics pick-up is coming to Cottage Grove. The organics will be used for composting, but a recent letter of intent has been signed to add anaerobic digestion that will recycle the organics into biogas. Sam Hanson of Ramsey/Washington Recycling and Energy (R&E) Center shared that organics food scrap bags will be distributed to residents. At the R & E Center robotic arms will be used to separate the organics from the regular trash. Part of Cottage Grove will participate in a pilot program beginning in April. Eventually all residents in Washington and Ramsey Counties will have access to free food scrap recycling from their homes. (time stamp: 14:39).
