Action Plan for
Recycling Waste in your Community
Recycling is very important in every community. Recycling efforts in
neighborhoods and local businesses keep your community trash-free and allows
for materials to be reused and recycled to improve the environment.
Informed community members can play an important role in tracking down
and recycling waste. Your community’s city council takes a role to empower its
people by giving them information and processes in which they can participate
to recycle. It is around this philosophy that awarenessIDEAS built its Community
Awareness Recycling Program.
From creating awareness, developing interest, promoting motivation by
demonstrating benefits, moving people to action, to giving
recognition when deserved, we can be your partner in your recycling
For thirty years, our people have been helping clients design recycling-themed
products and recycling process materials that track and reinforce good
recycling habits. AwarenessIDEAS programs have been successfully used
in communities for many years. We customize ideas and products to fit your
needs. Here are some suggestions that are easily transferrable to your
Set a standard for recycling in your community that everyone can agree upon.
One standard awarenessIDEAS recommends is: "If it can be recycled, it
should be recycled We put standards and practices in place to take advantage of
recycling methods for all materials that we can recycle. We can all do our part."
Get that message across using every avenue of communications open to you.
- Create Recycling Teams to
coordinate activities throughout your community. Volunteers and social
groups need the direction and assistance of community groups to organize
and save recycling
- Dress your Recycling Teams in
wearables that give them recognition and identity. We can easily add your
community logo to any of these wearables.
- Let us create banners and
posters with your Recycling Vision or Message. These can hang in your city
hall, civic center or any where else that a message of recycling
conservation would be beneficial. Having a parade or civic event? We will
develop banners and messages to spread your goals of recycling.
- Have a suggestion contest that
lasts 30 days, once every 6 months. Have appropriate inexpensive awareness
gifts for thoughtful ideas. You’ll be pleased by the great ideas your
community members will have on recycling.
- Use our recycling information
boards to hold posters and community recycling information inserts. Make
these available to anyone who desires this kind of information at town
hall meetings and other social functions.
- Pass out our Recycling Tip
Booklets to all your community’s families. Encourage each family to find
ways of reducing recycling waste in their homes. Use family success
stories in each issue of your community newsletter or local newspaper.
This is a powerful way to keep your people talking about recycling
conservation and their participation.
- Use recycling posters to
spotlight specific recycling problems in your community. Identifying individual problem areas in
your community will lead to specific success stories.
- Have a contest each month
that relates to that months recycling poster. A contest keeps the poster
message alive. People talk about the problem and therefore pay more
attention to solving it.
- Have a contest that
encourages each part of the community to improve its recycling efforts.
Give recognition for continuous achievement by citizens for being
successful recycling activist champions.
