165 neighbors want a lot more recycle bins available/visible all over the city in New Orleans.

Elaine
If more recycle bins were visible and available, maybe there wouldn't be as much garbage on the ground...especially at the lakefront...and what a great thing to teach our neighbors and children!

The meeting was great and included people from The Green Project, Hike for Katreena, Arc, Parkway Partners, Sewage & Water Board, and beyond. The person to talk to about public recycling bins should be there next time. Right now they're offering grants to help reduce litter and waste in Louisiana, due Aug 26. Also nominations for awards. Check their site for more: keeplouisianabeautiful.org

This looks like something volunteers could build!

Glad to see that Jeff Parish is at least making a slight effort with recycling bins. Does anyone know if this is a publicized effort and how they manage the recycling? I want to see the follow through on the initiative. Coming from SF where we recycle almost everything (www.spur.org/publications/libr...), I want the same thing for NO.

San Francisco is the best city in America at landfill avoidance. We report a 72 percent waste diversion rate, which accounts for our efforts to reduce and recycle, adjusted for population and employme

Great point! Tulane Community Health Center is just starting a recycling initiative at the clinic and will be putting out recycling bins in our lobby in the upcoming months. How can we help educate patients/the community on recycling?

There's an overall lack of education in this city about recycling. Most people just don't. And they have the attitude that no one in Nola recycles, so why should I? Maybe if the city was better about making it easy and also educating, that attitude could shift?

Great points! Particularly the "teach" part. It's easy to forget that what we choose to put in public says a lot about what we think is important.

I'm not sure there are any recycling bins that are public. Does the city or the home recycling company do that?
