New for 2017: RECYCLE MORE, RECYCLE BETTER
The District has been working with local marketing firm The Fairmount Group to develop a recycling education toolkit that includes standard materials and graphics for cities to use. We encourage cities to use and incorporate the toolkit components as part of their 2016-2017 grant projects.
This is part of a county-wide "Recycle More, Recycle Better" education campaign the District launched in 2016. Our goal is to create county-wide consistency in the recycling information that residents receive. There is a compelling need to reduce confusion around how to recycle properly and what to include and not include in the residential mixed recycling stream. Improving recycling quality and increasing participation will help sustain recycling in Cuyahoga County in the future.
