Recycling Services is also active in community outreach. Through a partnership with recycling coordinators and staff from the City of Greenville, Pitt County, ECVC, and Waste Industries, a project called Feed the Bin was initiated. The goal of this project is to provide education and recycling capability for all 5th graders throughout the Pitt County School system. This ongoing project has greatly reduced waste in the area, and is helping to establish a long-term positive culture for recycling in our community.
Green Fest is another project formed through the partnership. This annual event is usually scheduled for the Saturday prior to each Earth Day. Held at the Greenville Mall, vendors and organizations help to promote local sustainability initiatives and projects. Displays on hand range from hybrid cars, to rain barrels, and energy conservation techniques.
