ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A St. Cloud hair salon is joining other salons in an effort to recycle hair waste for use in everything from pet beds to oil spills.

The St. Cloud Times reports that Arbor Hair Studio has partnered with Canada-based Green Circle Salons. It's the 10th salon in Minnesota to work with the Canadian company. Green Circles aims to recycle up to 90 percent of waste that salons normally send to landfills. Stylists put cut hair into designated bins instead of throwing them away. The bins are then delivered to an Illinois warehouse where the company re-purposes the hair through various projects.

Arbor also has separate waste bins to collect metal products. A spokesman for the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency says it's a good thing when businesses take steps to reduce their environmental footprints.

HOLDINGFORD, Minn. (AP) - A 22-year-old central Minnesota man killed in action at Pearl Harbor has been laid to rest at his family's grave site.

Hundreds turned out Saturday to pay tribute to Navy Fireman 1st Class Elmer Kerestes in Holdingford. Kerestes was buried with full military honors next to his parents at Highland Cemetery. A niece, Janet Klug, tells the St. Cloud Times that the burial brings "a sense of closure" to the family. Kerestes was one of the 429 crew members who died aboard the USS Oklahoma when Japanese torpedo planes capsized the battleship on Dec. 7, 1941.

In 2015, the U.S. Department of Defense ordered the remains of the Oklahoma's 35 unidentified service members to be exhumed and analyzed using DNA evidence. The Navy used DNA to match Kerestes' remains.
