Last week, the Hillsborough County (Fla.) Solid Waste Management Department launched an education campaign that officials are hoping will increase recycling in the county by 10 percent.
The new campaign features a Web site — www.HillsboroughRecycles.org — at which residents can order new recycling bins and learn about the benefits of recycling. Another component of the campaign is the “Famous Bins” contest. Picture riddles will appear on billboards and bus sides throughout the county, and residents can submit their answers at the HillsboroughRecycles Web site.
The education campaign is funded through the county’s partnership with the Curbside Value Partnership.
