Show The Environment & Recycling Workers Some Love. Today we are joined by our friend Analiese Smith from Waukesha County Recycling. She will introduce us to 5 people working in recycling so you can better understand how they help us recycle cardboard and other items. Analiese will also share 5 actions you can take to show these hard working folks some love and keep them safe and help maintain efficiency. She will talk more about these actions when recycling:
a. Break down boxes
b. No bagged materials
c. Recycle right
d. Clean and dry
e. Know before you throw

Recycling incorrectly can have consequences for recycling workers by reducing their efficiency and putting them at harm.
Call us or visit the website at www.waukeshacounty.gov/recycling and click on “curbside recycling” to get your guide and ensure you’re only recycling items that are on the list to show some love to these recycling workers.
