Mandy and Emma have been working on improving recycling operations in Connellsville. We did a lot of research about Connellsville’s current recycling system and looked into what changes could be implemented for residential and commercial recycling. We met with a few city council members, the board of health officer, and a representative from Veolia (our waste management provider) to discuss the options we came up with and came to an agreement that Veolia would install a large centralized recycling bin in Connellsville. This will allow residents to recycle more often than once a month and will give businesses the opportunity to recycle. We will now begin an intense community outreach campaign to inform citizens about what, how, and where to recycle in Connellsville.
