Event Recycling Bins Now Available For Public

clearstream-2_000Jasper (Local Sources) – The Dubois County Solid Waste District now has event recycling bins that can be borrowed for public events such as festivals, fairs, meals, meetings and more.

Through an anonymous donation, the district is encouraging use of a new bin-lending program. The district has from one to 20 bins for any group or organization that would like to encourage recycling at their event.

The available bins, called ClearStream Bins (pictured), are portable, easy to set up and use a clear bag so event-goers can see what is in the bag and are more likely to recycle. Because of the convertible nature of the bins, groups can decide if they will recycle bottles, cans, paper, and/or a single stream of recyclables. The district will provide bins and bags. Groups will need to set up the bins, take care of their own recycling and record how many bags of recycling were collected.

“I really hope that we will see lots of event organizers taking advantage of this bin-lending program,” said Carla Striegel-Winner, director of the Dubois County Solid Waste District. “I am continually being asked why events do not offer recycling, and this should help with that issue.”

To reserve bins or learn more about the program, call Striegel-Winner at the district office at 812-482-7865 or email duboiscoswmd@psci.net.
