Healthy Communities

There is a direct connection between your health and the environment. Healthy Communities is a program created by City of Charlotte Solid Waste Services. The lifestyle-based program offers practical, actionable steps for improving personal health and the health of the environment. Healthy Communities provides information on ways to decrease waste "generation" and encourage reusing, upcycling, composting and recycling. This information will be shared through community events and in partnership with other organizations to decrease waste generated and increase recycling in targeted areas in Charlotte.

How Do I Manage My Waste?

The best way to manage your waste is to remember the last waste management option is to place the item in the garbage...landfill. The landfill is at the bottom of the waste stream so try to do other options first such as composting, reusing, upcycling and recycling.
