Residents of Greendale,
In April of 2018 Greendale will launch a new service, Curbside Recycling. This venture will take Greendale’s recycling efforts to the next level. Your help and participation will be the key in making this program a success.
At the present time, Greendale’s recycling program consists of residents taking their recycling materials to the city garage located on Rand Avenue. Once there, residents must separate each material and deposit them into the recycle trailers. It’s a good program, but depends on you to do the work. Studies show that the more work required by a resident to recycle, the less material will get recycled; in a lot of cases, people will not recycle at all. We can do better!
In April of 2018, Greendale will begin Curbside Recycling. The following are some of the benefits of Curbside Recycling.
Over two years ago, while a candidate running for Mayor, I was asked by a lot of residents, “Why doesn’t Greendale have curbside recycling?” It was my job to look into “Why?” I consulted with experts in the field of recycling, talked to experts in the field of sanitation and looked at the best practices of other successful recycling programs. A survey was done, confirming that curbside recycling is what the majority of citizens wanted. After over a year of strategizing, a plan has been formed. I am confident that this plan will be a success. Residents have already received some information in the mail about the curbside recycling program. Further information will be sent to residents as April draws nearer. This plan will make recycling easier for our residents, will mean less trash to the landfill, and will show Indiana that Greendale can take it to the next level; curbside recycling can work here in Greendale. Working together, I know it will.
