I’ve heard from many local governments that events are an excellent, economical way to educate about recycling. Make sure to ask for e-mails when staffing an event so you have the ability to follow up with people later.
Other face-to-face examples:
- Block leader programs
- Business waste assessments
- Award programs (ask for donations for plaques, etc.)
- Utilize other local government employees as ambassadors for your program.
Also, don’t forget about your local grocery store bulletin board or library kiosk. These are inexpensive yet effective communication methods.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
