2. Look Around: What Are Others Doing?
The next important step is to do your research. “At USF, we found statistics and did a lot of research about the benefits of recycling. We also looked at what other schools were doing,” Dixon said.
Property managers agree that you should look around the neighborhood. “What would make it easy for us is if someone came and said, ‘The four properties around ours have recycling service and this is the company they use,’ Schotsky said. That way the company could easily investigate the matter further.
See if you can find out how many places of residence like yours recycle in your town. If you can show your HOA or management company that others are recycling successfully, they will be more likely to listen.
