Wynne Coplea from the Illinois Green Economy Network says that municipalities can put forward policies and ordinances to encourage zero waste and recycling.

 

Todd Shumacker with Midwest Fiber Recycling says residents and businesses can use single-stream recycling, something his company facilitates, to cut down on landfill use and also help create more jobs in the recycling industry.

 

Springfield Public Works Director Mark Mahoney says city government is looking at ways to not only help businesses achieve Zero Waste, but also to increase internally the amount of recycling done by city government.
