When Thanksgiving comes around, the excitement of holiday festivities floods the air as turkey cooks in the oven and friends and family spend time together.
And nothing compares to the excitement of hosting a Thanksgiving meal, whether at home or the office. However, with more people around, there's naturally more waste generated than usual.
Ironically, this is one of the best and most difficult times to recycle. The best because opportunity to recycle increases with the number of guests. But it's difficult to communicate how your recycling routine works without sounding overly particular.
So, if your guests aren't familiar with recycling, or if their program differs from yours, here is a game plan for effectively getting the message out there:
For large gatherings, temporary bins are a great option! Holding up to 60 cans or bottles, these inexpensive pop-up bins make recycling convenient and portable.
We hope that everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Well-designed programs save money. Communities have many options available to make their programs more cost-effective, including maximizing their recycling rates, implementing pay-as-you-throw programs, and including incentives in waste management contracts that encourage disposal companies to recycle more and dispose of less.
