CVP Sees Growth in 2008

Curbside Value Partnership (CVP), Arlington, Va., says it experienced significant growth in 2008, adding six communities to its network of partners. To date, CVP’s 42 community partners have seen an average increase of 23 percent in recycling volume and 18 percent in participation, after joining the partnership.

“[Last year] was a momentous year for CVP,” said Steve Thompson, program director of CVP, in a press release. “Not only did we form new partnerships that resulted in real successes and continued to add to our list of materials and tools we provide to communities, but the real icing on the cake was forming an alliance with Keep America Beautiful to take CVP to the next level.”

CVP also has announced plans to partner with New York City and North Carolina in 2009.
