Solid Waste and Recycling in partnership with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, the South East Como Improvement Association and the Audubon Neighborhood Association are proud to announce the opening of residential organics drop-offs at Van Cleve Park (now open!) and Audubon Park (opening 10/7/14)!

Residential organics include all food waste (including food items that you should not compost in a backyard bin such as meat, bones and dairy), food-soiled and non-recyclable paper, and other compostable materials such as coffee grounds, filters, cotton swabs, dryer lint, and popsicle sticks.  Yard waste and pet waste are not accepted.  Residents must drop-off their organic materials in a compostable bag (either paper or certified compostable plastic).  Larger items such as pizza boxes and wax coated boxes do not need to be bagged.

Both drop-offs are open to all Minneapolis residents at no cost.  For the first two months, each drop-off will have the following designated delivery times when volunteers will be on site to answer questions, train new participants, and gather some information from residents that will be used to help craft the message for the future city-wide organics collection program.

  • Tuesdays 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
  • Saturdays 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

The Beltrami Neighborhood Council (BNC) is out knocking on doors this fall to talk with residents about the BNC Asset Mapping Project.  Perhaps you have already talked with us and if not, we’ll be by soon!

The purpose of the Asset Mapping Project is to discover the skills and talents of the Beltrami community.  With this information, we hope to help people contribute to improve the neighborhood, meet their neighbors, or find a job. Everyone has unique skills and talents.  The Beltrami Neighborhood Council wants to create an environment where these skills and talents can be shared with others and people can learn something new.  If people use their skills and talents in these ways, they feel valued, empowered, and will build a connection with the people around them.  The result is a stronger, more productive neighborhood because of the contributions of each individual.Since each member of your household has different interests and talents, please encourage all your household members to reply!

Help us out by completing a questionnaire at www.surveymonkey.com/s/6TYVK82!  Otherwise, we’ll try to reach you at home.

If you see Vanessa out with her clipboard, say hi!  She would love to meet you!

National Night Out is coming up on Tuesday, August 5th! National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention. It’s a great way to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a Minnesota summer evening surrounded by friends and family.

Today is the last day to close your street for free! You can register your event online or through 311. Remember! From July 23 through July 31, there is a $100 fee. After July 31 no applications for blocking off a street will be allowed.

To make this event a success, we need your help!  If you are interested in helping, please contact the BNC office (office@discoverbeltrami.org, 612‐229‐8480).  We need help with a variety of tasks – from setting up to helping with the grills.
