WHO ARE THE ECOMANIACS?

Ecomaniacs is non-profit organization dedicated to empowering an environmentally responsible community through recycling education

An estimated 75% of trash is recyclable but we are recycling less than 30% regionally. Ecomaniacs is dedicated to increasing this rate. Across the nation, recycling has increased through the implementation of Single Stream method of collection, but no recycling program succeeds without continuous and effective education.

We address this problem with our Summer Education Program, teaching good recycling habits to around 660,000 event goers per year in the Sioux Falls area. Ecomaniacs encourages event organizers to promote recyclable food-ware and educates attendees about what they can recycle. Over the  past 5 years, these efforts have increased event recycling rates to an average of 50% total waste generated.

Celebrating 5 Years!
