I’m wondering why our county doesn’t offer recycling. I have called waste management to no avail. Do you have any tips or avenues I can persue to get them up to date with a recycling program?

    You could always try getting in touch with people involved with the county legislature.  If that fails, perhaps you can appeal to one of your state senators.  Your argument in favor of implementing recycling will be much stronger if you can provide well-documented statistics (see the link below) demonstrating the benefits of recycling.

    The best way to take action would be to research the companies in your area that offer recycling programs. Work with them to project ballpark costs that can easily be presented and explained. Next you’ll want to round up your neighbors in support of this change and present as a unified front on the issue. A well-supported petition, taken to your local governing body, would certainly be the most public route and has the likelihood of inciting the change. It is essential to have this process be highly publicized so it can continue to gain support. Usually, recycling is done at the town/city level, not by county, and can be easily factored into homeowners’ waste management cost once implemented.
