City of Bridgeport Recycling Rate up 67 Percent with Recyclebank Partnership, Single-Stream Recycling

Aug 30th, 2013 | By | Category: Recycling

Mayor Bill Finch announced that the City of Bridgeport increased its recycling participation rate by 67 percent as compared to the previous two-year period. The increase follows the City’s switch to single-stream recycling and the expansion of the Recyclebank rewards program citywide. A recognized leader in behavior change, Recyclebank helps create a more sustainable future by rewarding people for taking everyday green actions, like recycling, with discounts and deals from locally-based businesses and national brands. Bridgeport has dramatically increased its recycling participation rate since it launched the enhanced recycling program in September 2011.

    i am having a hard time believing this is good news…the story speaks of pride of increase ….yet seems to have everything which might connote sustainability way behind the curtain. How is the collected material reused or what exactly is meant by recycling. The entire processes lacks transparency. Where
    does the collection go…China? the trash to energy plant….I remain a skeptic until these simple questions are answered.
