Episode 86: Feet on the Street Atlanta—The Recycling Partnership’s Case Study on Citywide Contamination Reduction

TAGS: Recycling

Feet on the Street was originally launched as a pilot program by The Recycling Partnership (TRP) in part to answer China’s National Sword policies. It now serves as a foundational model for TRP’s contamination-fighting methods implemented in communities across the country.

Join the stakeholders involved in Feet on the Street (FOTS) – Atlanta and learn about the program’s inception, execution and success. Hear about their role in FOTS, challenges faced, lessons learned and initial results from the program’s first year. 

You’ll see never-before-shared data about the program, including: updated contamination rates after tagging Atlanta’s 98,000 single-family homes; multicultural communications best practices; capture rate studies from 15-plus multi-family properties; and more. Walk away with the inspiration and data to make real changes or improvements in your own cities or businesses.
