Now that the election is over (mostly), some communities are asking their residents to vote for sustainability by recycling their yard signs.
The OneSTL Recycling Working Group is urging people living in the St. Louis metropolitan area to separate the corrugated polypropylene signs from their metal stands and seek out a place they can take their signs for collection.
Some communities will accept the signs in curbside recycling.
As St. Louis Public Radio reports, the group first started promoting sign recycling in the spring, when people placed congratulatory signs for drive-by graduation and birthday parties in their yards and weren't sure what to do with them after the event. OneSTL renewed the call for recycling after the primary election in August and again in early November.
