The SWANA Applied Research Foundation (ARF) is making the report, Encouraging Better Curbside Recycling Behaviors, free to SWANA members.

The SWANA Applied Research Foundation (ARF) is making the report Encouraging Better Curbside Recycling Behaviors free to SWANA members. This new report, presenting the costs and effectiveness of educational programs designed to address and improve recycling behaviours, follows the ARF report released in March 2021, Reducing Contamination in Curbside Recycling Programs, which addressed curbside recycling contamination.

"As local governments and others assess how to improve their recycling programs and reduce contamination, this new ARF report will be invaluable," stated David Biderman, SWANA Executive Director and CEO. "Reducing contamination is a key objective of EPA's National Recycling Strategy, and this report provides useful guidance. SWANA will be working closely with EPA and other recycling stakeholders to implement the Strategy using some of the lessons learned from this report."

The full report is currently available to SWANA ARF subscribers and SWANA members.
