Jacquelyn E. Bridges
Recycling Program Manager
The City of Atlanta has expanded recycling citywide! Our residential solid waste customers now have a 96-gallon recycling cart allowing for more recyclables to be collected. The citywide distribution of carts is a key component of the City’s sustainability plan, Power to Change, which has a long-term goal of achieving 90 percent diversion of municipal waste by 2020, among other measures.
Get Into It!
Get Into It, launched in the fall of 2012. We are providing more educational activities that include direct marketing around the roll-out of the new carts to residents, an enhanced web and social media presence, advertising, public relations and grassroots community-level outreach. The City will measure the impact of the campaign via the Emerge Knowledge Re-TRAC Connect data management tool. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
