DPW- Less Waste, Better Baltimore Focus Group

Dan participated in the Less Waster, Better Baltimore Focus Group. City dump will be at capacity in 2023. City has a mandate to get to 32% recycling rate, currently at 24%. Need to figure out how to make people in the city recycle.

  • Suggestions: free recycling bins, regular pickups, sorting that works, doing things with the plastic, invest in street infrastructure
  • Committee would want to reach out to DPW and ask to be the pilot program
  • Price out the cost of getting everyone a recycling can ($960,000)
