You have probably heard someone say “recycling is confusing.” Why are materials accepted in one community, but not in another, even when those communities are right next to each other? Are the materials being processed at the same Materials Recovery Facility (MRF)? What materials do belong in the curbside recycling program?

The Recycling Partnership has worked with the City of Milwaukee and the surrounding Waukesha County to develop harmonized recycling communication tools, using the same graphics, the same materials accepted in the recycling cart and the same communications strategy.

This effort demonstrated that when regional recycling efforts are coordinated and complementary, program participants are less confused and less likely to throw something in the cart that doesn’t belong there. Eliminating contamination from the bin is critical in today’s recycling markets.

Join this webinar to learn how these Wisconsin communities partnered with their State environmental officials, their MRF and their haulers to coordinate their recycling efforts. Learn how to use the free and easy-to-use tools to make it happen in your region or community.
