It’s time we started seeing recycling and trash differently. Each of us in the Kansas City region throws away about seven pounds of waste per day, which adds up to over a ton of trash per person every year. We need to acknowledge that our actions carry impact – good and bad. The way forward is for all of us — from individuals to public and private entities — to recycle more.
Through the Recycle More campaign, the MARC Solid Waste Management District encourages everyone to make a conscious effort to recycle more, whether they're newbies, pros, or somewhere in between. Our goal is to divert 80 percent of the waste that goes to the landfills by 2023.
There are many great ways you can start recycling more today!
