In "Wet-Dry Recycling at the Louisville Zoo" Global Field Program student Karen Maynard describes how a new recycling model for guests and employees at the Louisville Zoo is increasing recycling rates and helping support the zoo's mission. Zoo guests and employees no longer have to choose between recycling and trash. Instead, they chose from wet waste (is compostable and includes food scraps, liquids and napkins) and dry waste (everything else except trash from bathrooms, which is considered "true trash" is taken to the landfill). By separating wet and dry waste at the sourse, far less trash goes into the landfilll and the recovery of recyclables increases.
