Title:San Francisco Uses Ordinance to Promote Recycling in Public Places
Document Date:06/01/2008
Description:This Recycle on the Go Success Story discusses San Francisco, which hosts thousands of sporting events, street fairs, festivals, and concerts annually. Although these events bring communities together, they also generate large amounts of waste. To cut down on this volume of waste, the city passed an ordinance that requires recycling at special events. In addition, San Francisco banned the use of polystyrene food service ware by vendors. As a result, San Francisco’s innovative public space recycling program helped the city achieve a 70 percent waste diversion rate in 2006, surpassing the state-mandated recycling law.
