Better recycling for Philadelphia community spaces

Philadelphians know that the city's strength comes through its neighborhoods, and it's the small-scale connectors that provide the backbone of our communities. Neighborhood leaders are adept at focusing on the task at hand and "making it work", despite the obstacles. An effective recycling collection program can be a small but important step that educates the public and shows a commitment to the future.

decorative iron

2x waste bins (23 gallons each)

Pilot Recycling Station

A pilot recycling station was sponsored by Maurice Sampson of Niche Waste Reduction & Recycling Systems and installed at Tiny WPA, a West Philly group that teaches youth and adults design, fabrication, and entrepreneurship skills to help participants literally build better neighborhoods.

"We love our new Dyvert trash and recycling system. The Vue makes recycling easy and straightforward. We learned so much just setting up our new trash and recycling bins. Things we thought were recyclable are actually trash and vice versa. Everyone needs the Vue!"
