Outreach Activities, 1999

The 1999 report, NYC Recycles: More Than a Decade of Outreach Activities by the NYC Department of Sanitation, documents the major public education and outreach activities that supported the development and implementation of NYC’s groundbreaking recycling program.

The report follows the program’s growth from 1986, when recycling began on a voluntary, newspaper-only basis in one community board, and details the mailings, meetings, signage, seminars, workshops, advertising, and marketing that went into expansion citywide.
