The RecycleCT Wizard promotes the importance of managing materials more sustainably through waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting. The online tool encourages people, government entities, businesses, schools and organizations to adopt these practices as part of their everyday lives or operations. RecycleCT provides statewide promotion of recycling; creates educational materials available for printing that can be co-branded by municipalities, haulers and others; conducts research, including a recent recycling economic information study; and offers grant programs. Grants are available to help fund efforts that foster greater understanding of and promote action and engagement in waste reduction, reuse, recycling and composting in Connecticut.
How was the Project Started?
The RecycleCT Wizard was created by the RecycleCT Foundation, a Connecticut-based 501c3 nonprofit that was started as a result of legislation in 2014 through Public Act 14-94. RecycleCT was created to help bring Connecticut from an estimated 35% to a 60% diversion of solid waste from disposal by 2024, as described in the Connecticut Comprehensive Materials Management Strategy, adopted by CT DEEP in 2016.
