Environmental Assistance and Customer Service

Implement an EDUCATION Campaign

Education iconIf you want your recycling program to succeed, plan to implement a robust educational effort. Everyone should know what and how to recycle, which can be encouraged by clear directions and excellent signage. Reach out to all the potential users of your program and maintain a consistent commitment to education and promotion. Help users easily identify receptacle locations. Define what is recyclable and what is not, and explain how to separate the materials, if needed. Purchase or create signs, stickers or posters to label the containers to keep the bins free from contaminants and designated for recycling.

For stickers, signs and posters to label bins, visit RE3.org and the Plastic Bottle Artwork section.

For more formal education techniques, check out DEAC's PowerPoint presentation available for use, including some on recycling myths: www.slideshare.net/NCDENR
