Currently Minot ND only has one place to recycle and Minot does not have a curb side recycling program. Kalix recycles many items but it is far from comprehensive and it's location is not very convenient for much of Minot.
Although I am not a "save the earth" type of person I do like to be a good steward of God's gift below our feet. I take all our paper to Kalix. They accept all kinds of paper and cardboard. Our church takes aluminum cans some where and the money they collect from that goes to a fund to help pay for youth outings.
It's a shame that a City the size of Minot does not have a curb side recycling program. It's like money sailing away and down the drain. Besides the money that could be gained there is also the money lost due to our landfill filling up before it's time (which is a current topic here).
It may be an inconvenience to take your things to Kalix but I hope if you live in Minot you will do so. Do it to save the earth if that's what you believe. Do it to save the landfill, that's a real thing, or do it for the tokens they give you for a few cents off of your groceries. Just do it.
