Mission Statement

Rainbow Recycling is a grassroots community organization whose mission is to promote awareness and participation in recycling in Black Mountain and the surrounding area.

We seek to foster awareness and understanding of the reasons for and benefits of recycling for our local & broader community, the environment, and the ultimate well-being of our planet.

It is our vision and goal to increase the number of households and businesses involved in recycling as well as the level of involvement, to promote participation by institutions, and to create opportunities for visitors and residents alike to recycle where they shop, dine, recreate and gather for events in our community.

Such an effort necessitates dynamic dialog and cooperative work with various sectors of our community, both public and private. It also entails interacting with county, regional, and state offices and resources.

Our means to accomplishing our mission include:

* Providing information and educational opportunities;
* Engaging in outreach, networking, and cooperative and collaborative activity to promote recycling;
* Facilitating dialogue and serving as liaison between sectors of the community – public and private – about recycling, quality of life, and practical issues involved in providing recycling opportunities publicly acknowledging efforts and achievements in local recycling
