To improve residents’ awareness of the items that should never be placed in the recycling toter, Village staff in partnership with the Environment & Energy Committee have created an informational card that will be attached to all recycling toters (and bins) in the Village.
Starting tomorrow morning, Saturday, December 17, the Goode team will begin to deliver the recycling reminder (shown above) to each home, attaching them to recycling bins.
Household recycling is one of the easiest ways we can lessen our impact on the environment and climate. Proper recycling reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators, conserves natural resources, increases economic security by providing a domestic source of materials, reduces pollution created by the collection of raw materials and saves energy.
Together we can improve our community’s recycling awareness and decrease our impact on the climate and environment.
