What Goes Where?

The ‘What Goes Where?’ search tool is the workhorse of your educational program. It reduces phone calls and ensures residents have access to your program information, even when they are not visiting your website.

‘What happens next?’

Following an object through its journey to the landfill or into its new life as a recycled product helps residents feel more invested in doing their part, and more receptive to learning.

What type of recycler are you?

Read a client success story

The most impact it has had on my job is that it has relieved a lot of phone calls to my office as well as other departments.

I was able to notify the quadrant letting them know which streets could not be done that day.
