There is no better time than now for the need to increase education and transparency in the waste and recycling industry. Lady Green Recycling, a waste hauler from Miami, FL, is expanding their education programs by launching an App and a recycling activity toolkit book in January 2020.
Amongst several functions, the App shows waste diversion metrics and also has a Sorting game to teach users how to recycle properly through gamification. Floridians generate 10lbs. of garbage per day on average, twice the national rate. Since 2010 Michelle Salas, President of Lady Green Recycling, has been out to reduce that and the high contamination rates.
