In September of 2022, the Sustainability Task Force conducted a pilot recycling cart tagging program to learn about Glencoe Residents' recycling practices and educate them on how to recycle more effectively. The results helped the STF understand which areas need improvement. To read the full report, please follow this link.
The biggest findings we hope residents will take away from this pilot program are to:
* Leave it loose; don’t put bagged recyclable materials in the cart
* Plastic bags & film can’t be recycled using the curbside program
* Not everything with a recycling symbol can be put in the curbside cart
* Not all paper products such as napkins and paper towels are recyclable
