Recycling Plastic Drums for Recycling

Zack Donati 4 months ago in Better/Faster/Smarter/Cheaper updated by Tina Heidrich 2 weeks ago 2

Use old plastic drums at Prairie Point Community Park fields for recycling. Similar to the current garbage cans we use, but instead we could leave the lid on and cut the hole out to fit cans. We would use blue barrels and clearly mark them for recycling.

Figured this would be an easier system to recycle. It would be harder to contaminate recycling since the hole would fit cans only. High winds cause current recycling containers to knock down and blow around easily. 

How will OPD benefit from this idea?:

Thanks for the great idea Zack.

We will forward your suggestion along to the Operations Department and our Environmental Committee as this seems to impact those areas.

As soon as we have some feedback we will pass this along to you.

At this time some new recycling approaches are being implemented internally. Recycling is definitely always a priority with the Environmental Committee. Thank you for thinking green!
