U.S. RECYCLING IS IN A CRISIS.

So let's fix it, shall we?

In the 1930s, the Federal Government legislated the standardized road signs which allow people to drive properly wherever they are.

In the past ten years, our nonprofit organization has proven that the society-wide standardized label solution for recycling bins are the most effective, easiest, and lowest cost way to solve the recycling crisis.   There are already nine million standardized labels in use across the U.S. displayed on recycling bins in businesses, National Parks, airports, sports stadiums, schools, universities, government offices, households, etc. and they are proven to help people recycle more and recycle right

Following the same path and logic as standardized road signs, our nonprofit organization is pursuing legislation of the society-wide standardized labels

for recycling bins, to allow people to begin 

recycling properly wherever they are.

WHY IS RECYCLING IN A CRISIS?

 

HERE'S WHY ... 

.

Confusing and Do-It-Yourself labels on recycling bins and misleading claims on packaging are causing the public to be confused and even skeptical about recycling.  This results in millions of tons of 'garbage' being thrown in recycling bins across the U.S., and that contamination is crippling the economics of recycling and preventing manufacturers from being able to reuse the recyclables. 

As an analogy, if we wanted everyone to drive safely, we would never allow everyone to make their own road safety signs, right?  Because there are society-wide standardized road signs, we only go through drivers' education once and then we can all drive safely anywhere for the rest of our lives.

THANK YOU CONGRESSWOMAN MCCOLLUM ... and the Appropriations Committee for passing the Bill to advance the society-wide standardized label solution for recycling bins!

The standardized labels for

bins and residential carts:

We applaud the leaders that are now starting to display the national standardized labels on their recycling bins to make it easier for people to recycle more and recycle right, wherever they might be.  Every city, every airport, every business, every school and every recycling hauler should display the standardized labels on recycling bins to make it easier for people to recycle right. If they don't, we need to ask them, "why wouldn't you want make it easier for people to recycle properly throughout society?"

$1.3 MILLION

SAVED!!!

When Bank of America donated the standardized labels to the public K-12 school district in Orlando, FL (OCPS), the school district's recycling levels increased more than 90% and as a result, the school district has saved over $1.3 million dollars in trash hauling fees (net savings!)
