THE GOALS AND INITIATIVES IN THE STEWARDSHIP PLAN cont.
2D) Public space/events program
Many public areas/special events lack beverage container collection bins. Having bins accessible encourages the public to recycle and diverts containers from the waste stream.
Goal: To raise awareness among event organizers and public space managers that recycling beverage containers is a service that needs to be in place and included in the planning of any successful event.
- Service providers, as well as charitable organizations, that specialize in providing recycling bins for public spaces and public events will be promoted to organizers of events where beverage containers are being discarded.
- We, and/or specialized service providers, will identify the highest value venues and provide collection bins and promotional literature to individuals responsible for these venues and arrange for service provider contracts to collect and maintain the bins.
