The SE Como Improvement Association has taken a stance against expanding garbage burning at HERC and has a history of working with polluters to arrive at positive solutions to current bad practices.
More than half of what is currently being burned at the burner is recyclables and compost, which results in a trifold cost to the community: a loss of revune from recyclables, a cost to burn, and a cost in our health.
We hope that you will join us in working to make Minneapolis a greener and cleaner City. We will try to keep you posted on public meetings and notices on this site.
