A Place to Call Home

With organics waste accounting for up to 50 percent of household trash, the Blue Bag Organics system takes household recycling to the next level.

BBO recycling services are covered by the $5.75 recycling fee that all residents pay through their utility bill each month. If you're interested in participating, contact City Hall to sign up: 763-479-4305 or mschneider@ci.loretto.mn.us.

Once you're signed up, Randy's will provide the following:

  • sixty 13-gallon Blue Bag Organics compostable can liners per year (a $72 yearly value)
  • a coupon for a complimentary bag of Blue Bag Premium Compost to new subscribers (a $4 value)
  • weekly pick-up of organics as described below


On trash day, make sure to hand tie the Blue Bag Organics can liner containing your household's organics waste and place it inside your regular refuse cart. Randy's will separate all the Blue Bag Organics from other trash at their facility, and off they'll go to a composting company.

Residents may sign up for the Blue Bag Organics program at any time, just call City Hall to sign up or ask questions.  We welcome your call.
