Wed., August 10: Community Education 101: 11:30 am – 12:30 pm CST
Every successful recycling program starts with education.

Education both increases participation and revenues, and reduces contamination and costs. But it’s far more than just publishing your recycling guidelines. You need to sell the community on why recycling matters, how to do it right, and most importantly, how to see their discards not as trash, but as valuable resources for your local economy. We’ll focus on the best channels to get your word out and the key messages to motivate your community, and provide effective strategies and tools.
