As the warm weather creeps closer, those campgrounds and trails start beckoning. But planning for outdoor season isn’t just a matter of making sure there’s enough room for tents, bear lockers are shipshape and trails are maintained.
Michael Alexander, President of Recycle Away, attended the The National Facilities Management and Technology Conference in Baltimore, Maryland last month and had the pleasure of speaking at the conference on the topic of sustainability and how to "Design Successful Public Space Recycling Programs." Michael was accompanied by Alec Cooley, the Director of Recycling Programs for Keep America Beautiful which is the nation's largest leading nonprofit that builds and sustains vibrant communities. Together they spoke about the benefits of successful recycling programs that can incorporate the best new practices in public space recycling and how placement, label messaging, bin color and other design tactics can help you design and execute winning recycling programs.
It's not to early to think about spring is it? With winter slowly coming to an end, it's important to think about the new season that's upon us and how to prepare your recycling needs for the outdoors. Whether you are expanding, improving or implementing a public-space recycling program into your business or organization, it's vital to plan ahead and make your program the most successful it can be.
