State of Indiana encouraging recycling among state employees

Indiana’s trying to encourage more recycling by state employees.

The Indiana Government Center’s two buildings house most state agencies.

There are already recycling bins for paper, cans and bottles, but next week, the state will install nearly 100 new ones, with bins for different kinds of trash side-by-side, with illustrated signs showing what goes where.

On average, the U-S recycles a third of its trash — Indiana only recycles about a fifth. Environmental Management Commissioner Bruno Pigott says he’d like to raise that to 50-percent.
