    Have Pledged To Recycle More

Recent Pledges

  • I’m excited about being more intentional with how I dispose of trash. I plan to (read more…) get my family and community involved in the recycling process due to the large amount of trash that’s dropped on the ground in my neighborhood. Most of which is recyclable.

  • It has been necessary for me to reside in an apartment for a few months while I (read more…)purchase a home. The city I live in has an ordinance in place for mandatory recycling at all apartment complexes, condominiums, etc. My apartment complex refused to comply. I finally called code enforcement and the apartment complex has finally placed a very small bin in their offices for the recycling of paper and plastic items. This is not readily accessible because the office is not open 24 hours a day. This past week they sent a notice out that items could be brought into their office for recycling on Saturdays ONLY. This is pitiful. Every resident I have spoken to wants recycling bins, and says that they will use them, but the complex can not be made to do any more than what they are doing which is LITTLE. It is ridiculous that no one can make them do more or offer more than what they are doing. Meanwhile the garbage bins available to us are always overflowing with cardboard, glass, plastic, paper, aluminum, and steel. It is ridiculous.
