:085 Community Recycling


Suggested Review – :084

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet.

1:5:10:085 Tip: Different communities have different recycling options. The fact that you are reading this tip means its likely that you are willing to sort your wastes and recycle – but many people don’t. Even with curbside pickup programs a GFK Custom Research survey showed that only 52% of households recycle their glass and aluminum and 14% don’t recycle anything at all. Having people separate their recyclables is a good habit to establish, but using a Materials Recovery Facility  to collect recyclables collects the most.


Additional Information

The community of Roseville, California had to start a public relations campaign to let Roseville residents know that their trash is sorted to remove recyclables at a Materials Recovery Facility at the landfill. If you want to seperate your cans and bottles you can sell them back, but if you just throw them in the trash, they still are collected and recycled. More information about this system is available at: http://www.roseville.ca.us/eu/solid_waste_utility/recycling/default.asp
