Recycling Cart Tagging Program Helps Residents Recycle Right

In an effort to educate consumers about proper recycling, SWALCO has been participating in a recycling cart tagging program where staff members examine these items people place in their recycling carts.  For each bin they look at, they leave a tag to let the resident know if all items in the cart were recyclable, or if there was an item or items in their cart that should not have been.  If a mistake was made, staff members will put a note on the tag to let the consumer know how to dispose of that item.  The program was most recently completed in Round Lake Beach, where 450 home were visited.  SWALCO plans to partner with more communities in the future to offer this program.
