Newspaper Publisher Provides MBTA With 200 Recycling Bins
Publishers of Metro Boston, a free daily newspaper, have purchased 200 recycling bins which will be distributed throughout the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s commuter system. The bins will provide a spot for commuters to recycle their newspapers.
The bins also serve as 200 mini-billboards for the paper, with the Metro’s logo visible on the sides.
“Two of the chief concerns raised by our customers pertain to trash on the MBTA system and the desire to see us recycle more,” said MBTA General Manager Daniel A. Grabauskas. “On behalf of hundreds of thousands of T customers, I want to thank Metro for this innovative and generous initiative. This will help us expand our recycling program so people can conveniently dispose of their newspapers, not on the floor, but in a bin.”
Each day, almost 300,000 people read the Metro -? many of whom do so while riding the trains.
