The JB Green Team initiated several new programs during 2013 to expand the recycling solid waste commitment to our community. One of those programs kicked off in November of last year was a curbside recycling trial. The purpose of the trial was to run a one-year trial collection activity in each county. We selected the largest city community and a target area of 400 homes in each city selected by the city administration. The mayors of each city were very enthusiastic in the support of this one-year trial. Each donated a significant portion of their time to communicate the program to their city residents. Each further made themselves available to advertisements encouraging participation. Each also provided city employees and volunteer workers from local organizations to distribute the collection containers.
