TAMPA, Fla. (November 1, 2023)— HCP Associates recently completed the third iteration of the Commercial Recycling Study for Pinellas County’s Department of Solid Waste (DSW). The department manages the county’s landfill, Waste-to-Energy facility, and recycling programs.
The biennial Commercial Recycling Study results provide insight to the department on businesses in Pinellas County’s waste and recycling habits as well as familiarity with resources.
A total of 418 Pinellas County businesses, located throughout the county, were asked questions about whether their business recycles or not and the reasoning behind each, the challenges they face in doing so and disposing of materials, who is responsible for recycling, brand awareness of the county recycling resources, and more.
This research provides the Pinellas County Department of Solid Waste metrics to use in long-term planning for their organization, as well as benchmarking brand awareness with new tools they have implemented.
