ESD Asks the Public to ‘Recycle Right’ During March Madness

The Environmental Services Department (ESD) encourages residents to go green and recycle by turning their blue bins into a hoop and dunking their recyclables during March Madness.

Big game gatherings can create a large amount of trash that will end up at the Greater El Paso Landfill. Environmental Services estimates that thousands of aluminum cans, plastic bottles and clean cardboard material will pass the recycle bin and be thrown in the trash before, during and after the games.

Below are a few tips ESD’s Recycling Division wants you to remember when it comes to recycling.

  • Before a gathering, set aside separate containers for trash and recycling. Aluminum cans, plastic bottles and clean cardboard packaged products are recyclable.
  • Pizza boxes and Styrofoam cups and plates are NOT RECYCLABLE; those belong in the trash.
  • Purchase aluminum cans instead of glass; ESD does not accept glass in the blue bins
  • Serve food on reusable plates that can be washed and used again. A move like this can reduce the amount of trash that may end up in the landfill.

Research proves that when people see others recycling, they’re more likely to follow that person’s lead.

The ESD encourages everyone to recycle right not just during March Madness but all year. To learn more about recycling visit Recycle Right El Paso at www.recyclerightEP.com
