Shared Hauling = Shared Impacts Green Team Roundtable
WasteCap Nebraska has successfully assisted six downtown Lincoln businesses on two different blocks in developing shared waste and recycling programs. Combined, the shared recycling programs will increase recycling by 29 cubic yards per week and save the businesses $338.31 total per month.
A luncheon celebrating the successes and challenges of the shared waste hauling systems, and generating momentum for future dialogue and implementation will be held on Thursday, April 13th at The Bourbon Theatre, 1415 O Street from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Cost is $10 or $8 for WasteCap Nebraska members.
