The Recycling Education Committee (REC) maintains the resources below to help make recycling communications and education easier and more consistent across Minnesota.
Minnesota Recycling Education Calendar 2023
Minnesota Organics Recycling Education Calendar 2023
REC created these calendars of suggested recycling education themes for each month. The goal of this initiative is to have as many people as possible educating on the same topics at the same time with consistent messaging to the public. The topics in the calendar are linked to corresponding DropBox folders with articles and images you can reuse at your organization!
Recycling Communications Newsletter
Email minnesotaREC@gmail.com to receive the monthly newsletter with reminders about upcoming seasonal recycling communications.
Recycling Education Toolkit
Developed by the Recycling Partnership, the Recycling Education Toolkit features label resources that are intended for use within cities and counties that have not already developed these tools. There are also free recycling images for you to download and use.
Recycling Communications and Education DropBox
This DropBox folder contains files created by various organizations who have given permission for reproduction by others. Why recreate the wheel?!
Recycling Outreach Guide for Minnesota
You’re invited to use the Recycling Outreach Guide to augment your recycling education campaigns. This guide is a living document, created by the Recycling Education Committee (REC) with the goal to streamline recycling messaging across the state, in a way that makes recycling easier for residents. Standardized communication for recycling best practices will help us collect more material, with less contamination.
