Webinar ID: 566-547-770
This webinar builds on our December 2014 webinar that presented tips, tactics and tools to improve residential recycling, with an emphasis on harmonizing approaches and outreach materials.
We all know the importance of solid recycling communication, but given limited budgets and the rise of technology, how do you organize and prioritize your education and outreach plan? What about social media? What works best, and where should you focus resources first? This webinar will investigate best practice approaches, review campaigns that work, and leave you with practical approaches for fine tuning recycling education in your community.
