For all those communities looking to start a recycling or environmental program, welcome. Here we have put together some resources that will make the development of your program much easier and allow you to maintain your program with continued support.
Environmental Protection Agency Region 4
EPA Region 4, which includes Georgia, has put together what they are calling a Municipal Government Toolkit for recycling. It is a collection of links and resources from other agencies concerning recycling in the southeast. It also includes reports to gain momentum for recycling such as reports on the economic and environmental benefits of recycling. You can find the toolkit at https://archive.epa.gov/region4/rcra/mgtoolkit/web/html/index.html. You can also find more information about the toolkit's purpose and usefulness by reading Jay Basset's presentation at the Georgia Recycling Coalition's annual conference in St. Simons.
