Determine existing resources available downtown businesses and residences to help reduce waste and increase recycling. (A. Zarella)

EDUCATION: Identify different educational tools such as seminars, posters, emails, local media coverage, etc to facilitate better understanding and knowledge about value of trash and recycling.

OUTREACH: Partner with organizations currently working on waste and pollution reduction. Research and identify innovative outreach efforts that were successful at increasing trash and recycling participation in other cities and use as model for Downtown. Create and implement at least one bilingual outreach initiative in 2009 to reach out to stakeholders on this issue.
