“You’ve Been Mabel’d!” Mabel’s Labels has Partnered with the City of Hamilton to Promote Recycling!

“You’ve Been Mabel’d!” Diane handing out FREE customized Curbside labels to a Hamilton, On neighborhood.

Together with the City of Hamilton, ON we selected 3 neighborhoods to get “Mabel’d” with FREE  Curbside Labels to promote the city’s Gold Box program. The houses in the 3 neighborhoods were encouraged to place the Curbside Labels on their recycling & garbage bins and sign up to receive the gold star of recycling – a Gold Box!

GoldBox Audit

Gold Box winners receive a coupon for a FREE customized Curbside label from Mabel’s Labels, plus a sheet with recycling tips.

When Diane went back a week later with two City of Hamilton Waste Management team members they audited 18 houses and 6 of the homes were awarded with a Gold Box

In order to win a Gold Box, you must separate your paper and plastics as well as have any food or yard waste in the green bin and have just one bag of garbage.

Top blue box: Great recycling of plastics! Lower blue box: Incorrect recycling – hard plastic lids and candy bags are garbage.
Right: Cardboard ready for pick up – broken down is preferred, but stacked is just as good!

Each address is scored – a maximum of 3 minor infractions will still get you a Gold Box. For example – you didn’t break down your boxes, or you didn’t take the hard plastic lids off your juice containers or water bottles. Another infraction would be that you had your paper and plastic separated,but you had non stretchy plastic or hard plastic within the box – that is garbage. If you can’t bend, stretch or dent it, it isn’t recyclable.

Yay! This house was awarded with a Gold Box for their recycling efforts.
