Lately, some colorful recycle bins have been popping up around Burbank. It’s another campaign designed to encourage people to recycle and gives them some new places to dispose of bottles and cans. The campaign was launched this summer, in late July. “It was paid for with funds we had accrued through the State bottles and can program,” according to Amy Hammes over at the Burbank Recycle Center.

Hammes says there are now 16 new recycle bins “… they are placed at City parks and other sites.”  Oh, and Hayes & CO Printing over on West Magnolia Blvd reportedly handled the cool design and definitely deserves a high-five for that.
