Local communities across Central Florida are teaming up to help you recycle right! Central Florida Recycles is a campaign aimed at uniting communities across the region to prevent valuable recyclables from going to waste in our landfills. Recycling is good for both the environment and the economy, but contamination can hinder the process and increase costs for everyone.
Whether you’re new to recycling or have been trying your best for years, please take a few minutes to review some recycling basics that ring true across the region.
Stay informed by following #CentralFloridaRecycles on social media.
How do you reuse or recycle plastic shopping bags, package wraps and other single-use materials? Tell the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) by taking a short survey!
FDEP is partnering with the University of Florida to learn more about the use of plastic bags in retail across the state.
The survey will be open through October 31.
