Description:
Recycling in outdoor parks, streetscapes, and other public spaces can be challenging. The unrestricted, “on-the-go” nature of these public spaces makes them more susceptible to contamination, wear and tear, and other issues.

This webinar recording features a diverse panel of Canadian and US speakers sharing case study examples of successful local programs. The presenters will draw from their own experience discussing where to locate bins, what design features to choose, messaging to put on signs, and more. The program will feature overview presentations, an interactive panel discussion, and an opportunity to share your own insights and questions.
