Youth, City Collaborate on New Recycling Bins
Youth members of Transition Northfield worked with City of Northfield staff, committee and elected officials to create and execute a project to redesign the permanent recycling bins in downtown Northfield.
Thanks to a collaborative effort, recycling in Northfield recently got a little bit easier.
The youth, who received guidance from Northfield Streets and Parks Supervisor TJ Heinricy and Public Works Director Joe Stapf, wanted to increase recycling throughout the downtown area.
In addition to meeting with officials and creating the plan, the youth got their hands dirty and helped in the creation of the bins, including welding them.
