From this week's Next Great City newsletter:
RecycleNOW Philadelphia is currently focusing on bringing commercial buildings and apartments into compliance and enforcing the commercial recycling regulations. The City of Philadelphia’s commercial recycling regulations require that all commercial buildings in all parts of the City including businesses, apartment buildings of more than six units, and schools provide recycling for their employees and/or tenants. Unfortunately, the current level of compliance has a lot of room for improvement.
RecycleNOW will be working with tenants and employees to train them on how to advocate for recycling in their workplace or apartment. Get involved by:
