Transition Honesdale’s Reduce, Reuse, Recycle & Compost action group is working to help Honesdale and surrounding region excel at recycling and composting by making it easy and fun!
Right now we are actively working with Merchants on Main, the Borough Council & SEEDS to place a single stream dumpster in downtown Honesdale for business recycling. Many businesses already recycle, but many more say they would recycle if it was easier. Right now, it takes an employee time to make the trip to the Wayne County Recycling Center. For many small, local businesses it’s prohibitively difficult. We’re trying to help!

Watch the tragedy of Plastics in the Ocean – in some places, it’s like a “plastic soup” where there is more plastic than plankton! Then wean yourself off plastic consumption, as much as possible, by switching to alternatives.
