Improve Recycling

Recycling Success

Three keys factors are essential to creating successful recycling programs in your community:

  • Convenience (makes it easy for people to access)
  • Communication (get the word out)
  • Cause (getting people to understand and appreciate the benefits of recycling)

There is no one size fits all solution to recycling. What works in a large city doesn’t necessarily work in a rural town. Through our affiliation with Keep America Beautiful, we can provide research and resources to help your community create a sustainable, successful program that works for your citizens.

Rural Recycling Success

Across the state, rural communities are creating innovative recycling programs that can provide models for other towns who want to create their own successful program.
