Attention Ann Arbor residents and business owners: Do you have ideas to help build Ann Arbor's recycling and composting outreach program? If so, we could use your help.
Reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting help ensure that waste doesn't end up burnt or buried. Yet, confusion caused by package labeling, what plastics can or can’t be recycled, and recycling guidelines that can differ between communities can make participating difficult. The City of Ann Arbor has partnered with the Ecology Center to help connect our community with information on recycling, composting, and reusing that's easier to understand and more readily available.
We will be hosting in-person meetings in Spring of 2023 (in-person or virtual meetings yet to be determined.) To participate, you'll need to attend two meetings; the first meeting will be approx. 2 hrs and the second meeting will be approx. 1 hour. At the first meeting you will share your thoughts, experiences, and ideas for making recycling, composting, and reusing easier to understand. The Ecology Center will be providing compensation in the form of a Visa gift card for meeting attendance.
If you are interested, please fill out this 2-minute Community Interest Survey. Your participation will help us remove barriers to recycling, composting, and reusing to make Ann Arbor a healthier and more sustainable space.
