Wisconsin Be SMART Coalition
The Be SMART Coalition’s Recycle More Wisconsin campaign shows what items can be recycled, tells residents how to recycle more, and explains how recyclables are processed and shipped to companies who use them to manufacture new products.
The Wisconsin Be SMART Coalition, which stands for Save Money And Reduce Trash, is an award-winning partnership of 34 municipalities who are responsible for ensuring recycling compliance in their communities. The Coalition works with state agencies, non-profit and environmental organizations, business and schools to reduce waste, increase recycling, and conserve Wisconsin’s resources by preventing recyclables from going to waste in landfills.
