Your Residents Don’t Have The Tools to Get Recycling Right

Recycling can be confusing, boring and overly-complicated. There are thousands of mixed-material products and no certain way for your residents to know what can and can’t be recycled.

As a result, they guess, they wish-cycle, or they don’t bother. Your residents aren’t sure of the recycling practices in your municipality. The right tools will motivate them to recycle better, with easy access to accurate information the moment they need it.

Give Your Residents a Way to Learn The Right Recycling Practices

Recycle Coach puts an end to harmful wish-cycling in your municipality. When used regularly by local residents, our app has proven to be drastically effective – and we’re proud of that! Customized to your municipality’s needs, we’ve seen up to 185% improvement after just a few months.

From personalized garbage and recycling collection calendars to essential communication tools and a popular Ask Milo “What Goes Where” search engine, this app was built to help your residents recycle better.

Interactive Lessons on Responsible Recycling

Food and liquid are the two  most prevalent contaminants of recyclables. Educate residents on how to keep items empty, clean, and dry before they go in the recycling bin, and why.

Bagged recyclables is a common issue experienced across municipalities. Our interactive campaigns tackle this issue.

Coated paper causes problems. We engage residents to learn examples of coated paper that cannot be recycled such as gift bags, coffee cups, and more.

Grease is gross. We engage residents on why and how it’s important to toss only clean cardboard and paper pieces into recycling.

If it tangles, then it mangles. Tanglers are items that can get stuck in the equipment at a recycling facility like ropes, wires, chains. Residents learn about this threat to recycling facilities from our campaigns.

Don’t be a dangerous dumper. Certain items can be dangerous when mixed with recycling, like batteries, light bulbs and medications. Our campaigns educate residents on these items.

If in doubt, throw it out. The Coachlings engage residents on how to curb contamination by disposing of things in the garbage instead of wish-cycling.

Every municipality has its challenges! With the Recycle Coach app, you can address specific problems with our interactive campaigns. Each campaign is designed to positively impact residents’ behaviors by addressing the best practices and major threats to recycling right.
