Welcome to our partnership page! Below you'll find a copy of the letter sent out to many businesses and organizations in Haywood county, NC. If you would like to become a recycling partner, please give me a call! This service is of no-cost to you and I am excited to work with you!
Sustainable Haywood, an inititive created by Simple Solutions Specialist, is inviting you to join in the effort to reduce the amount of trash that goes into our local landfills.
As you are probably aware, many things can be recycled if taken to the proper facility, but many times these items are simply thrown into the trash because there is no convenient drop off point or people many not be aware that they cannot be included in the “regular” recycling. Additionally, the facilities that accept some items require larger amounts than one household or business could collect in a reasonable amount of time.
Sustainable Haywood and Simple Solution Specialist would like to offer to place a collection box in a convenient location in your facility which would be labeled with a clear list of collectable items. This box would be collected once a month, or more often if needed. Some of the items that would be collected are used/empty ink pens, Earth’s Best baby food pouches, Bausch & Lomb contacts and blister packs, Bear Naked snack pouches, old binders, Brita filters, all Colgate packaging, Dawn dishwashing liquid soft packs, Honest Kids drink pouches, Earthborn Holistic pet food and treat packages, Clif energy bar wrappers, Larabar energy bar wrappers, Febreze aerosol cans and plug-ins, instrument strings, Late July snack bags, Malt-o-Meal cereal bags, Open Farm pet food bags, PUR water filters, and Garden of Eatin, Terra, and Sensible Portion snack bags. As you can see, there are a lot of things that can be recycled, but only if they are sent or delivered to the proper facility. Most of these items should not be included in a regular recycling bin.
If your organization would like to participate in this new program, I am happy to come and do a presentation describing the program and how it works. This program is no cost to you and can only benefit our environment and future generations. I am also available for Introduction to Sustainability workshops and courses.
Please give me a call and we can set up a time to meet, go over the details, or just get to know one another. I would love to partner with you in our efforts to create a sustainable future for Haywood county!
I'm looking forward to speaking with you to see how I can help you!
