Greenville citizens recycled 10.4 percent more waste between January and April this year than they did during the same period last year, a news release said Wednesday.

City officials attribute the increase to a new campaign launched last November.

National entities Curbside Value Partnership and Keep America Beautiful paid to develop a creative marketing campaign to encourage Greenville residents to recycle. The city and nonprofit entity Keep Greenville Beautiful put that plan in place, which included advertising in local media outlets, direct mailers and utility bills and producing “Green-er-ville” stickers.
