Creating a Green City

Minden strives to be a green city and provides its citizens and businesses with recycling capabilities. Recycling materials are picked up the same day as the trash is picked up every week. Items need to be placed curbside since there is no drop-off site available. Recycling is offered at no charge to residents and businesses.
