New Tradition Marries Trash/Recycling to Community Events

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO) : A new innovative recycling program has surfaced in Fort Wayne. 

The new “Borrow-a-Bin” program will launch this weekend with the upcoming Three Rivers Festival. The program allows event goers to pitch-in recyclable products and keep them out of a landfill. Bob Kennedy, Director of Division Public Works said, “Eighty percent of the community is participating in our recycling program and many organizations have been asking us how they could have recycling at their special event or festival.” There will be 50 recycling carts available for event organizers to use.
