Waste not: Statewide recycling report shows region has room for improvement

The sorting crew at Recycle City in St. Peters sorts through refuse.

Prakop, a founding member of the O'Fallon Recycling Committee, wants to change habits in our disposable culture, even if she has to go door to door to do it."I'll make house calls," Prakop said, explaining that if she sees someone isn't recycling, she'll knock on their door and ask why.
Like Prakop, many are concerned about the rate at which recyclable material is clogging landfills.A recent statewide study shows progress on getting people to recycle is mixed, but there is hope on the horizon.
