Take the Chicago Recycling Survey




Chicago’s recycling numbers can best be described as a work in progress, even though 600,000 residential blue carts have been rolled out since 2007. The Chicago Recycling Coalition is looking for Chicago residents only (not suburbanites) to take part in a survey that will lead to improved service.

The survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete and the answers gathered through September will help the Chicago Recycling Coalition and Chicago’s recycling community push for new and better recycling policies throughout the city.

The Chicago Recycling Coalition is an organization of ordinary people that believe effective recycling and reuse programs are integral to a healthy environment. For more than two decades, it has provided recycling education and information to Chicago’s citizens while advocating for sound recycling policies for our city, county and state.
