A Public Place Recycling Program That Relies on People Power | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

This is an entrepreneurial way of dealing with public place recycling.


Rather than simply slapping a recycling bin or two in public places and hoping for the best, Greener Corners puts in a large bin that is funded through local business advertising on its sides.


Taking it a step further, Greener Corners also engages with the community to educate people about recycling. "Green Teams" are assembled from local volunteers, and they get out and educate people in schools, civic centres and the like.


Greener Corners has also involved smartphones, including QR codes that, when scanned, show what materials can be recycled in that municipality.
