One of the biggest issues in recycling today is the lack of education and the shared unknown if something can be recycled. To help with that, Madison, Wis. Is holding recycling courses to educate residents.

According to the city of Madison, nearly 20% of the materials places in Madison recycling bins this past April weren’t recyclable.

To help combat this and educate its residents on proper recycling practices, Madison is hosting a two-night course to teach about the dos and don’ts of recycling. The sessions will be held over Zoom and run for 90 minutes, the first of which will be held on July 12.

Residents are encouraged to register online and tuition for the courses will run $15.

After the course, those who attend will be asked to take part in community outreach and share what they’ve learned, passing the recycling knowledge on to someone else in hopes of bringing recycling rates up.
