Maggie Mae

KBGIB has partnered with TerraCycle to offer cigarette waste recycling options to our local community.

Already on board with the program are Maggie Mae's Restaurant, Cast Aways Lounge, King and Prince

Seafood, and many KBGIB Adopt-A-Highway groups. With cigarette butts the number one littered

item, there now is an easy and free way to recycle the butts collected from roadways,

as well as cigarette waste generated at home and work.

 Off-Site Recycle Trailer Before1       Off-Site Recycle Trailer After1

To get the KBGIB Off-Site Recycle Trailer ready for use, it was given an extreme makeover - with recycled paint -

by KBGIB Staff. When you reserve this trailer, it will come with up to four rolling carts (20 disassembled recycling bins

per cart). The bins take up the front section of the trailer and are attached near the colorful rectangle so they do not roll

around in transport. When you make your reservation, please consider how many trash cans will be at your event...

that is the number of recycle bins we suggest that you reserve. This is a free service provided to our community via

KBGIB. Please see the above link for details. We want to help make recycling at your next event EASY and FUN!

          How can my business recycle if we have space limitations for recycling

             containers?

                        If you are a business that generates a large volume of materials, it may be

                        difficult to find a space on your property or in your building to gather recyclable

                        materials.  Businesses located in business parks, or close to other businesses,

                        can look into forming partnerships and sharing a recycling container with others

                        nearby.

          What is my role as a business to recycle?

                         As a business, it is up to you to recycle as much as you can in a way that is cost

                         efficient to you.  It is important for businesses to create an environment that

                         encourages their workers to become enthusiastic about recycling.  Setting

                         standards for employee recycling, and creating easily accessible recycling

                         areas on your premises, greatly improves the chances of success for your

                         recycling program.


                         A business should look at a recycling provider as a partner and understand the

                         limitations of the recycling service.  However, by working together to create

                         a recycling plan appropriate for you needs, the business and service provider

                         can come to an arrangement that is both easily managed and cost-efficient.
