Recycling Outreach and Education
Brightside’s Saint Louis City Recycles Team has created a strategic plan to help reach City of St. Louis Sustainability Action agenda goal of doubling residential recycling in St. Louis by 2018. The team is developing and implementing new tools and projects aimed at increasing participation in the City’s single stream recycling program.
Saint Louis City Recycles is focused on teaching residents in the City of St. Louis about the “Blue Bin Basics” of recycling. These include: (1) always recycling common household items like paper, cardboard, and food or beverage bottles, cans and cartons in your blue bins; (2) never put plastic bags, Styrofoam, food waste or sharps in your blue bins; (3) keep recyclables loose, clean and dry; (4) always flatten cardboard. Following these steps can create tremendous benefits for the city and the entire region as recycling is proven to create and maintain jobs, protect the environment and provide health and social benefits.
This handy Recycling 101 sheet will help you, your friends and family recycle right! We also have it available as a refrigerator magnet. If you need more details on recycling and the City’s waste services, download the City’s Ultimate Waste Disposal Guide.
