The "Reuse, Recycle Starter Kit" includes tailored educational materials for Holland residents about the carbon and local economic benefits of recycling. It is meant to be used as a guide for local governments who want to take action and includes information on a funding opportunity to transition local businesses and public schools from single-use plastic wares to reusables. The starter kit also walks through how to calculate your community's waste management impacts and shares editable access to all of the tailored educational materials made for Holland in English and Spanish, for replication purposes. Lastly, the Reuse, Recycle Starter Kit makes the case for looking at expanding your recycling program to multifamily unit dwellings. It shares grant opportunities specific to multifamily recycling and highlights considerations to take into account as a community gets started.
