New Promotion and Education Resources for MMSW CollectorsNews posted on March 27, 2019
We are excited to announce that our new collector resources are now available here. You can download these resources for free and use them for your waste packaging and paper recycling program promotion and education initiatives.
There are two different resources which come in a variety of sizes (e.g. poster, social media and print ad sizes). The first resource focuses on wrong items vs. right items in residents’ recycling containers, and the second focuses on encouraging residents to recycle to keep Saskatchewan beautiful.
Recent MMSW consumer research showed 50% of residents want more information on how to make recycling easier and around what items are not accepted in their recycling program. In a survey we put out in October, collectors said that their top two challenges are decreasing contamination and increasing participation in recycling programs. This feedback helped us determine the two resource topics. Throughout development of the resources, we tested the resource concepts with some of our collectors and incorporated their feedback into the final designs.
