If you missed it, on Feb. 16., Keep America Beautiful hosted a webinar with the Moore Recycling Associates on their new resource, RecycleYourPlastics.org, as well as some of Keep America Beautiful’s recycling tools and resources.
Plastics recycling is growing, but there are challenges. The good news is that many different types of plastics are now being recycled in communities across the country. The challenge is how to communicate what is recycled in your community. The terms, the RIC numbers, the descriptions can often be confusing. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. The more we can unify and simplify recycling messaging, the easier it will be for residents to understand what is recyclable.
View the webinar recording to learn:
* The need for a common set of terms for plastics recycling;
* Take a tour of the Terms and Tools resource on RecycleYourPlastics.org, an interactive tool created to provide common terminology, royalty-free images, and help you create free educational flyers.
In this session, you’ll gather ideas for communicating with your residents about plastics recycling and to discuss the best way to communicate about the commodities you collect with haulers and MRFs. Together, we can make plastics recycling less confusing and recycle more plastics.
