City launches interactive recycling kiosk

September 7, 2011

ASHEVILLE – About two dozen people came out to Tuesday’s official launch of the city’s new interactive recycling kiosk at the Asheville Civic Center.

The kiosk – which urges people to “be social, do good” – was funded by a grant from the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and was created through a partnership between the city’s Office of Sustainability and Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College’s Sustainable Technologies Program.

The kiosk also features a quiz to test users’ “green” knowledge and a video on recycling.

Users can take advantage of single-stream recycling at the kiosk, and can also take a picture in its photo booth and share it via email, Facebook and other social media.
