How you can help

You can boost Fargo’s “green” initiatives by MATBUS. One bus carrying 50 people saves 32 gallons of gas in one day, reducing our city’s dependence on gasoline. Riding MAT also reduces wear on city streets, saving money for taxpayers on street maintenance costs.

The city’s recycling program also offers you a way to protect our natural resources. About 60 percent of what’s in your garbage could be recycled. The city offers a curbside recycling program and many drop-off locations for recyclables.

You can also give new life to your old Christmas tree each winter when the city collects the trees for recycling. The trees are turned into compost and wood chips given away to residents each year.
