Cook County Recycling Helps Keep America Beautiful

CookCountyRecyclyingA zero waste audit by ISTC for the Forest Preserves of Cook County led to an expansion of the parks’ recycling capabilities, thanks to a grant from the Coca-Cola/Keep America Beautiful (KAB) Recycling Bin Grant Program.

 

One of the recommendations from the waste audit was to apply for the KAB grant. The new recycling bins are now used at large special events at the preserve attracting up to 4,000 visitors. More on the Cook County Forest Preserves recycling efforts.
