HDR’s Scotto, Hughes Detail the Role of Social Media in Successful Recycling Programs for MSW Management
Social Media as a Tool to Educate Wishful Recyclers and Increase Recycling Program Engagement
With China’s National Sword policy in effect, it’s critical for residents and solid waste management organizations to have an ongoing two-way conversation about recycling policy changes.

Social media is effective in opening the lines of communication with residents for ongoing education and engagement.
