(5)    Increase Recycling in Your Neighborhood   Planning Meeting!

Wednesday, August 31st      6:30 – 7:30pm       Grace Episcopal Church (3700 Canal St.)

Would you like to help grow recycling participation in your neighborhood?  I’m reaching out to all neighborhoods across the city to plan a city-wide neighborhood recycling sign-up canvassing day.   The idea is to help spread the word, educate and hopefully get new people to sign-up for curbside recycling with the city. 

If we can gather together some passionate people from each neighborhood who would be interested in leading the charge to canvass their own neighborhood and motivate other neighbors to help, I think we can really have an impact in boosting participation across the city. 

Hope to see you there!                 Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
