Come speak out as the City of Long Beach decides just how much of their recycling to stop doing!
You've been fighting plastic pollution with us for years, and now discussion is turning to decreasing easily recycled materials and pushing for more plastic instead.
Five years in to "single stream" recycling and a large portion of the public had little or no idea with low amounts collected and decreasing.
We need to stand with the City of Long Beach to enhance recycling going forward, vastly increase participation, education and outreach,and also enforce compliance.
Imagine the world we want, not just what easiest or cheapest for the City's contractor that just pushes the real costs of this pollution to future generations. We also know we cannot burn our way out of climate change. At it's core it is caused by burning things and the release of gasses. Increasing incineration isn't really a neutral activity. What you throw "away" doesn't just "go away". There is no away. It becomes part of our atmosphere. Come help us make sure we are doing the most we can.
