BLACK PLASTIC TO GO CONTAINERS GOING AWAY
Black plastic containers are being phased out in the city. At the end of the year, black plastic containers will no longer be accepted under Green To Go rules. Black plastic containers are being phased out because they are problematic and are trash. They:
• Are not able to be sorted
• Do not have robust aftermarkets to make them into new materials
These problems result in recycling facilities not accepting black plastics. Black plastics end up being sent for incineration or to the landfill. For more information, contact Nate Kelly at Nathaniel.Kelly@minneapolismn.gov or 612-369-8057.
CANINE FLU AFFECTING DOGS AND CATS
On May 5, the Minnesota Board of Animal Health alerted Minneapolis Animal Care & Control to several cases of canine influenza found in Minneapolis, particularly in the North Loop and Uptown areas. Canine influenza is a highly infectious virus spread among dogs. The virus is not believed to be a threat to humans, although it can infect cats. It is particularly concerning in areas where high concentrations of dogs gather. Most dogs experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover within two-three weeks. Some dogs will experience more serious infections that could result in secondary conditions such as pneumonia and possibly death. It’s important to see a veterinarian for specific treatment plans.
