Buffalo Recycling Alliance
The City of Buffalo has dramatically increased its residential recycling rates with its new totes. PPG and its allies want to build on that success with a Buffalo Recycling Alliance that will work to increase recycling and reduce waste at businesses, multi-family residences, schools, and events through education, collaboration, and advocacy. The founding organizations of the Alliance are: Buffalo First!, Citizens Campaign for the Environment, Partnership for the Public Good, Olmsted Center for Sight and the Sierra Club Niagara Group.
The Alliance meets every other Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo. All are welcome to join this exciting effort. For more information, contact Kyla Jaquish, Kyla@ppgbuffalo.org, 852-4191 ext 115.
Recycling on the Radio
PPG has a radio show, the Public Good, each Tuesday from 1:00 to 1:30 pm on WUFO AM 1080. Each week we feature a PPG Partner or other person working toward the public good and discuss some of the region’s hottest issues.
