City Identifies “Dirty Dozen” In New Recycling Campaign

How You Can Recycle Right

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Proper disposal of recyclable items helps the environment and saves money. That is why today the City of Corpus Christi’s Solid Waste Services Department is officially kicking off its Recycle Right campaign.

The goal of this campaign is to educate the public about what and how to recycle to help conserve resources more efficiently and protect the environment. The Recycle Right campaign will introduce 12 characters which are part of The Recycling Bin’s Dirty Dozen. Every month, a new character will be spotlighted. Details about how each one contaminates other good recyclables as well as helpful tips and information will be featured on the City’s website and social media outlets.
