Decals reminding people that aluminum cans and plastic bottles are banned from landfill disposal are available for use at your school, church, home trash bin, office, dorm, etc. The decals should be placed on trash containers that often get filled with recyclable cans and bottles. The decal says “Recycle Instead,” hopefully reminding people that there is an alternative to throwing the material away. They should be placed in locations where a recycling bin is nearby or the person can take it home to be recycled.
Thirty-seven local governments partnered with the N.C. Division of Environmental Assistance and Outreach (formerly the Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance), the Association of Postconsumer Plastics Recyclers and Duke Energy to fund the purchase of the decals. Universities, businesses, athletic venues, public schools, malls, etc. are all able to receive decals while supplies last. Just contact Kelley.firstname.lastname@example.org.
