There’s this town that has one of the most abysmal recycling rates in the state. Just next door lays a city with an award-winning recycling program.

There is something to share here. And it’s important because green progress must transcend borders. A garden next to tarmac does not fare as well as a garden next to a garden!

Recycling champions have emerged from the town with the abysmal trash record and have sat with recycling leaders. A blade of grass has poked through the border.
