As part of the distribution from the Alcoa and National Recycling Coalitionbin program, our 22 gallon green recycling bins were distributed to Ohio's state recycling representative in the Columbus, Ohio area. Numerous bins were sent to locations in and around Columbus, including the State Rhodes Tower office complex, Ohio State University, Columbus State Community College and various Westerville City schools. It is estimated that recycling volumes increased by about 25% in these office buildings and schools as a result of these recycling bins. Additional bins were taken to select residential areas in Westerville, Ohio, causing the volume of recyclables to jump up by 30%.
The majority of the materials collected are office paper, newspaper, magazines, aluminum cans, and a few other types of recyclables.
