2011 Recycling Means Business Campaign

In early 2011 more than 150 municipalities, businesses, and organizations joined their voices to call for a restoration of local recycling requirements and state cost share funding in the proposed state budget. A sign on letter to state legislators and the governor includefd well over 100 governmental and tribal units, 27 businesses or industry trade groups, and 15 non-profit organizations. The letter was written and circulated by four solid waste and recycling organizations, the Associated Recyclers of Wisconsin (AROW), Solid Waste Association of North America- Badger Chapter (SWANA), Wisconsin Counties Solid Waste Management Association (WCSWMA), and Wisconsin Council on Recycling.

Below is a collection of resources and documents that were created during this campaign.
