Curbside Value Partnership is no more. But don’t worry. The organization that promotes curbside recycling is simply changing its name to the Recycling Partnership.
CVP has been managing a program called the Recycling Partnership since last summer. The partnership was created to use money from the private sector to help transition municipalities to roll-out containers, from bins, to help promote increased recycling rates.
“The Recycling Partnership launched in July 2014 to build a better America through targeted actions to improve recycling in communities. It became increasingly clear that the educational resources, tools and ideas that CVP develops and shares shouldn’t be separated from the best practices being promoted and implemented by the Recycling Partnership,” Executive Director Keefe Harrison said in a statement.
The partnership’s initial work has been in Richmond, Va., Columbia, S.C., and Florence, Ala.
Sponsors of the organization include American Chemistry Council, Society of the Plastics Industry Inc., Association of Postconsumer Plastic Recyclers, Amcor Ltd., Foodservice Packaging Institute, Coca-Cola Co, and Sonoco Products Co.
