Meet Louise Mann
A former school teacher, Waste Reduction Resources founder, Louise G. Mann began promoting “beyond the bin” waste reduction/recycling concepts in the late 1980s. Even if your community is using curbside collection Louise advocates you add complementary drop off centers. Her vision of drop off centers is that they be welcoming community centers engaging citizens in comprehensive environmental stewardship.
Though retired, Louise remains committed to the concept of welcoming, park-like, family friendly educational drop-off centers. View Recycle Signal in the Drop Off section to learn more about this cost effective approach to clean recycling.
An outspoken advocate for more hands on citizen engagement in waste reduction/recycling programs, Mann is pushing to see citizens reclaim their recyclable resources and obtain direct communication with re-manufacturers/end-users, the companies making new products from recyclables.
After decades of observing collected recyclables becoming more and more contaminated, Louise initiated, co-wrote and testified for the Recycling Accountability House Resolution 1043 which was successfully passed by the 2013 Arkansas House of Representatives. You can view AR HR 1043 HERE.
Over the years Mann has worked with federal and local government agencies as well as non-profit organizations. Louise loves talking trash, especially with those willing to “think beyond the recycle bin”.
