What educational efforts are in place and how much does the city spend on education regarding its recycling program?
The marketing and education budget for recycling is $120,000 per year and is paid for from the Recycling and Trash Collection operating budget. The Recycle Something campaign recently won the state of Arkansas ENVY award (Environmental Stewardship Award); the campaign includes educational outreach focused on behavior change through printed materials and public service announcements that reach all citizens through media channels as well as hands on education for citizens and students of 20 hours per week via Boston Mountain Solid Waste District. Local media outlets frequently run updates such as the one recently produced by University of Arkansas Broadcast Journalism students.
