Recycling Focus Group

In researching how our EAC (Montgomery Township) can best educate/serve our citizens about recycling we have learned the following:

  1. Recycling is huge, complex, confusing and fluid.  Challenge to research, harder to educate and influence.
  2. We struggle enacting programs like plastic bag deincentive/ban, since we have so much large retail and so many customers coming outside our zip.
  3. The real weight of recycling lies with the trash haulers, MRF's,  Trex, Newman paper recycling, etc.  Each is too big for single EAC's to influence.    Most EAC's are  too small to benefit them in partnering.
  4. What we are trying to do.. we are sure overlaps with beliefs and initiatives from other EACs across PA.

Is anyone else interested in exploring the formation of a EAC/PA wide recycling focus team(s)?   Benefits: Avoid duplication, increase clout, shared strategies.  Thanks  Don Hamp
