Local Recycling Guide

No more long, painful lists. No more recycling guides that end with “contact your city for local instructions.” Our comprehensive recycling guide takes the guesswork out of recycling by offering great practical tips for reducing, reusing and recycling hundreds of common household items, thoroughly vetted for accuracy and relevance to your local program. Highly visual, super clear and dead simple to follow, the guide is educational and engaging, and designed to inspire your citizens to think and act green.

Weekly Collection Reminders

Residents will appreciate weekly reminders about garbage day, especially on alternating-week schedules, and you will reap the benefits of 52 opportunities a year to reach out to your citizens. We always combine reminders with tips on recycling and news about upcoming events, as well as program changes, holiday schedules and more. Don’t worry about writing content every week — your outsourced outreach team at Recyclist does that for you. Just let us know if you want any changes, or make them yourself with our easy-to-use editing tools.

Mobile Friendly

Because more than half of online traffic comes from smartphones and tablets, our communications platform is designed to work perfectly across all devices. Our design gives you all the benefits of an app, with no installation necessary. With Recyclist, you’ve got the right tool to reach everyone everywhere.

Social Media & Newsletters

While a good website is important, today it’s equally important to push information out across multiple channels, so people can get info wherever they prefer to consume it — in their inbox, their Facebook news feed or Twitter timeline. Publishing everywhere is time-consuming, which is why Recyclist provides you with content ready to use on each platform, and a dashboard from which you can publish to all channels with the click of a single button.

Reporting Made Easy

Download print-ready reports and data that you can use to quantify and communicate your outreach efforts and outcomes to councils, boards, grants and CalRecycle.

EPA Stormwater Compliance

Proper disposal of materials, especially hazardous ones, can have more of an impact on your stormwater system than on your waste stream. Designed with stormwater in mind, your Recyclist site helps you meet the EPA’s Stormwater Phase II Final Rule Public Education & Outreach Minimum Control Measure. To quote the EPA, “An informed and knowledgeable community is crucial to the success of a stormwater management program.”

The consensus from the international literature suggests that encouraging participation in community recycling programs may require little more than institutional commitment to support and maintain regular public information and education programs.

As guardians of the public interest, local governments should focus on strengthening local reuse and repair economies ... Much needs to be done with educating citizens to consume responsibly, share resources where appropriate, and extract the maximum utility from goods.
