In 2014, St. Louis Earth Day continued many multi-year relationships with a diverse group of businesses and organizations that hold special events. Through Recycling On the Go, we are able to provide recycling and composting services and education to diverse groups and to a variety of venues.

With 82 tons of materials diverted in 2014, more waste than ever before was kept out of area landfills by the program. We also broke our personal record for number of events we partnered with this year.
