The City of Rogers is asking Residents to please be environmentally conscious and dispose of items that may contain Mercury responsibly.

Mercury in Your Home

Mercury is used in a wide variety of household products, including paint, thermometers, thermostats, batteries, fluorescent lamps, disinfectants, antiseptics, diuretics and preservatives. These items release mercury into the environment and home when broken, mishandled or disposed. Proper care is important when dealing with mercury-containing products. If spilled, mercury absorbs into many household materials while slowly evaporating into the air over time, allowing for exposure. Knowing what products and items contain mercury and handling them properly will limit the risk of mercury exposure. Common products often have a simple and environmentally friendly alternative.

You can also add two new groups of recyclables: Milk, juice and soup cartons, as well as plastic containers #1— #7. Below is a quick guide to what is/is not accepted in the single sort cart.  Think before you throw!

State Statute requires that recycling be made available to residential properties in Minnesota.  This mandatory program is coordinated by the County, but the ultimate requirement falls to cities to ensure that curbside recycling is provided.
