The National Association of Counties (NACo) awarded a 2016 achievement award to the Miami-Dade County Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM). DWSM received this award for their program, Recycle This, Not That Educational Campaign:
The Recycle This, Not That Educational Campaign was created with the County’s Communications Department to help reduce the amount of unacceptable items in the County’s recycling program, by educating residents on what can and cannot be recycled. Two of the videos in the campaign can be viewed online: Recycle This, Not That! - Paper vs. Plastic Bags and Recycle This, Not That! - Milk Carton vs. Foam Container.
