Adopt-a-Bin ['60 Likes' on September 24, 2012!]
Recycle Hawaii would like to implement an Adopt-a-Bin Program by enlisting local businesses to purchase and maintain a recycling bin. Let’s ‘go green’ and increase recycling opportunities throughout the Downtown Hilo area! Here’s a photo of some very nice bins available from a mainland company. We want to place these bins where they are needed and can be maintained without overtaking sidewalks. Downtown is a walkable community and we want to keep our sidewalks pedestrian friendly. If we place a bin on the sidewalk we will also need a permit. We need your ideas!
Where in Downtown Hilo would you like to see recycle bins?
How can we incentivize businesses to Adopt-a-Bin that can be placed on their property or in public spaces?
Besides businesses, are there any organizations who can help to ensure that these bins are emptied?
Do you have a business that wants to sponsor a bin?
