Launched in August 2021 in Atlanta, GA….
The Recycling Partnership created the Do You Recycle? Challenge. The Do You Recycle? Challenge provides multi-family communities the tools and guidance needed to deliver and track recycling access and education to all residents.
Program involvement will challenge multi-family communities to commit to reduce waste to landfills, improve recycling outcomes, and empower residents to do their part.
Since Atlanta is home to nearly 1,500 multi-family properties, representing 140,000+ homes, it is an ideal place for the Do You Recycle Challenge to focus. The goal of the Challenge is to get 100 buildings participating in a 12-month period.
Live Thrive’s Involvement
Through Live Thrive’s experience with and connection to residents of multi-family communities in the City of Atlanta, we have seen first-hand the need to improve single-stream recycling infrastructure and education to these communities, therefore making us an essential managing partner and point of networking for the DYR Challenge.
