Take It to the Bin Challenge
Starting April 1, Lincoln’s landfill no longer accepts clean and dry corrugated cardboard. No Amazon boxes. No moving boxes. Why? Corrugated cardboard is an easily-recyclable material that too many Lincolnites are throwing away—with 37.5 million pounds ending up in the landfill last year.
The City of Lincoln and its partner, communications agency Carson+Co Global, need your help to remind people to recycle corrugated cardboard—as well as everything else.
All you have to do is “Take it to the Bin.”
That means we want you to make a video with your phone showing people creative ways to toss recyclables into recycling bins. Here’s how to do it:
- Select a recyclable material and find a recycling bin at home or a public drop-off site, etc.
- Have someone record you saying “Take it to the Bin,” then take your shot.
- Get fancy—or don’t. Wear a costume. Show off a unique talent or skill. Include babies and pets. Have fun!
- Post to your social media accounts, using the campaign hashtag, #takeitothebin
- Tag friends in the post to do the same!
Recycle Lincoln Ambassadors
The Recycle Lincoln Ambassadors are an outreach extension of the City’s recycling education campaign. This group includes representatives from commercial and residential sectors, educational institutions, sustainability and community, and special interest groups. This group supports the Take It to the Bin initiative by sharing insights on recycling in Lincoln. Ambassadors utilize their networks and connections to encourage recycling and share the message about taking corrugated cardboard to the recycling bin.
