SWACO is working with Franklin County businesses to achieve a 75% diversion by 2032. We know that implementing sustainable recycling programs can be challenging. Bin Placement and Signage are key components of a successful recycling program and can often improve or “fix” contamination issues, making things less confusing for users. This 30-minute webinar will look at best practices and review the bin and signage resources SWACO has available for businesses. Plus, we will provide examples of good bin and signage placement as well as not-so-good examples. Learn why we need to label bins as LANDFILL and not TRASH. Sign up here.
