Recycle Everywhere Providing Free Bins to all Single Family Dwellings in East St. Paul

Posted: May 7, 2021

Starting Monday, May 10 and over the next week, more than 3,400 Recycle Everywhere bins will be delivered to each single family dwelling household in East St. Paul, in an effort to help make in-home beverage container recycling more convenient. A pilot study showed that there was an increase in the recovery of beverage containers, as well as other recyclable materials, in households that were provided with the free bins.

 

"With 70 per cent of all beverage containers being consumed at home, the opportunity to improve beverage container recovery is greater with enhanced convenience and education,” said Christa Rust, Senior Program Director, for the Canadian Beverage Container Recycling Association (CBCRA) and its Recycle Everywhere program. "Through third-party research we have learnt that residents have varied recycling habits. By providing these single family dwelling bins to each home, we are offering residents the convenience to make the choice to recycle, while bringing awareness to our mission.”

 

The single-family dwelling style bins will be distributed by CBCRA/Recycle Everywhere. The free bins are meant to be placed next to a waste bin in a kitchen, helping to make the decision to recycle easier. The style of the bin allows for greater ease to transport recycled material to the curbside cart.

It is a great opportunity to help households continue to divert recyclables from their home, and now, with the help from the CBCRA and the free bin program, it just got one step easier.
