Recycling's rise creates bigger economic effect for Minnesota, state pollution agency says


Recycled trash delivered $3.4 billion worth of economic treasures to Minnesotans’ wallets last year, according to a new Minnesota Pollution Control Agency report issued to state legislators Monday.

The report shows that the conversion of old or used products into new ones created 60,215 jobs, $3.4 billion in wages and $26 billion worth of sales last year.

That’s an increase of about 1,700 jobs from 2011, the last year for which the MPCA reported totals to Minnesota legislators, as required by law.
