The City of Orlando’s Solid Waste department has launched a survey in an effort to find out what residents know about recycling.
Information gleaned from the survey will be used to launch an educational campaign this summer. Why an education campaign? Because the City wants to lower contamination rates; that amount of items that are put into the system that aren’t prepared correctly, like unwashed food containers or pizza boxes (the latter is garbage).
In addition to the survey, collection teams will be grading curbside recycling carts, leaving behind feedback on whether they find evidence of contamination or not. The City wants to know what residents are and are not recycling. This is part of reaching their target of Zero Waste by 2040.
