Public Space Recycling at Fairs
|“We were thrilled to deliver a successful recycling program at the Indiana State Fair in partnership with KAB. We gained valuable insight about less obvious generators of recyclable material around the fair grounds and will tweak our placement of bins accordingly. We look forward to growing the impact of this already very successful program in the years ahead.” – Carey Hamilton, Indiana Recycling Coalition (IRC) Executive Director|
