Binners’ Project is beginning work on a new, innovative training program to build the capacity of binners on staff. This program will consist of half in-session training and half on-the-job training.
As our social enterprise programs have grown, clients have shown increasing demand for high-quality work from binners. However, many of the binner participants in our programs, for reasons of acute economic, social, and health-based marginalization, are not always able to keep up with mainstream expectations around professionalism and evolving recycling standards. The absence of these skills can result in persistent challenges on-site and reduced quality of service.
