Reaching out to residents, educating them about the need for recycling, and promoting available services are vital to the success of recycling. We are constantly researching and developing ways to communicate with residents. Methods that we're using to promote recycling in the City of St. Louis currently include the following:
Facebook - www.facebook.com/STLRecyclingProgram
Twitter - http://twitter.com/CSLRRR
Tumblr - http://cslrrr.tumblr.com
The Recycling Program staff is available to present at meetings of community groups, neighborhood associations, or other citizen groups, to educate residents about waste reduction and recycling opportunities. For more information, or to schedule a presentation, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 314.353.8877.
We are also available to table information at special events such as fairs and festivals.

STL TV Bulletins - We regularly promote recycling services to residents by submitting bulletins to STL TV, our City's cable television station (channel 992 on Charter and 99 on AT&T U-Verse), which air in between programming.
E-Mail / List Servs
We e-mail neighborhood associations, community groups, individual residents, etc. about available recycling programs and services.
Bulletin Boards and Literature Displays
If approval has been given by the owner or a representative, we can provide print materials to post on bulletin boards or stock literature displays at schools, businesses, community groups, non-profits, etc. Please contact us if you are interested in posting or stocking print materials.
Is there a project that you have in mind, but you're not quite sure how to proceed? The Recycling Program is here to assist you. From background research to training to educational materials, our staff can provide you with technical assistance to help you implement new projects, programs, or services in your area.
Do you need information or articles for your organization's newsletter or webpages? Please feel free to download and photocopy anything that you see on our website. Or, we can e-mail it to you, so that you can cut and paste what you need, or customize it for your group. If necessary, we can also provide you with hard copies - on recycled content paper, of course! Are your residents interested in a topic that you don't see on our webpages? Let us know. Our staff can assist you with researching the issue and preparing related materials.
