Problem: RECYCLING CONTAMINATION is the city's biggest challenge. This occurs when the wrong items are mixed in the recycle bin. Also, when the right recyclable items are prepared wrong and then placed in the recycle bin. There is a low percentage of residents recycling right. Meanwhile, natural resources are being depleted and landfills are being filled at an increasing rate.
Solution: RECYCLEING RIGHT - CALL TO ACTION
The City of Kankakee requires all residents to participate in the recycle program. We are moving forward in an effort to help
The Recycle Team has come together to educate all residents on what to recycle, how to prepare recyclables, and to answer any specific questions. Recycling saves resources & energy, reduces incineration and helps protect our environment.
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE BY RECYCLING RIGHT.
YES WE CAN!!!
