STAR works closely with the Carton Council to increase carton recycling in Texas and to educate Texans on the overall carton recycling process. Together with the Carton Council, STAR has produced several educational podcasts and even hosted several free webinars.
STAR, in partnership with Tetra Pak North America and the Carton Council, hosted a three-part webinar series in November 2015 that identified opportunities for expanding recycling in Texas and highlighted successful municipal recycling programs, both in and outside of the state. Each of the webinars focused on particular tools for moving material recovery forward in three key areas: infrastructure, policy, and education/communication. Slideshow presentations and videos from the webinar series are available here.
- STAR takes you back to school for a lesson on what it takes to bring a new item into the recycling stream with this podcast, “Back to School Night.”
- In this podcast we go behind the scenes to see how curbside carton recycling arrived in Denton, Texas. The story highlights the importance of public-private partnerships and strong educational campaigns. You can listen to “Carton Recycling Arrives in Denton,” here.
