City of Savannah works to offer curbside
The City of Savannah is currently
gearing up to offer single-stream
curbside recycling to their residents
at the beginning of 2009. With assistance
from the Curbside Value Partnership
(CVP), the City of Savannah will
roll out a grassroots education campaign
encouraging residents to recycle
curbside, rather than simply at the
drop-off locations in the city.
Beginning this fall and running through
2009, CVP, a national program designed
to help communities grow their curbside
programs through education, will
help the City of Savannah teach residents
about the new curbside recycling
system, specifically how and what
can be recycled and the benefits
to be gained.
The City will work with CVP to implement
a local communication campaign designed
to reach city residents through strategic
advertising, participation in local
events, partnerships and media relations.
Additionally, CVP will work with
Savannah officials to unveil the
new statewide recycling brand currently
being developed by the state’s Department
of Community Affairs.
