Recycling in Champlin Parks 

Recycling DSC03144

Through the support of a Public Space Recycling Grant from Hennepin County and the initiative of the City’s Parks Facilities Manager, the City now offers recycling at Andrews Park.  Participation has been good since the carts were added to the park this summer and users are doing a great job of properly separating recycling from trash. Park patron participation and efforts to keep trash out of the recycling will determine if the City expands the recycling program to other parks. When visiting the parks with others please share information on this new recycling opportunity.

The Hennepin County grants are designed to improve public access to recycling while away from home. Funding is provided to public entities to implement or expand recycling and composting programs at parks, sports venues, special events and along commercial districts.

With the recent trail and sidewalk development in the southwest portion of the community, the City has successfully provided safe off-road access to Hennepin County Regional Trail Corridor. These trails are designed for non-motorized uses, such as bicycling, hiking, jogging, walking and cross-country skiing. The City will continue to provide additional access locations to these valuable park system resources in the future.
The Park and Recreation Commission requests your help in controlling damage to small trees and other property. Any resident who see suspicious activity should call the Police Department at (763) 421-2971 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and the Hennepin County Police Dispatch at 612-525-6220 during other times.
