Greyhound is helping people bin their old behaviours

As part of our Pride celebrations this year, Greyhound Recycling and Recovery has launched an online tool called the ‘Bin of Old Behaviours’  It is designed to help people recycle themselves, own up to their past behaviour and move forward, making the internet a less toxic place.

“Greyhound believes that everyone should be given the chance to recycle their thoughts and be more open and loving. We believe the current culture does not allow people to learn and grow.

Being involved in recycling, this tool seemed like a wonderful opportunity for us to use our expertise to make the world a better place,” says Michael Buckley, Owner, Greyhound Recycling and Recovery. 

Find and review old tweets

Developed to combat this trend which promotes the action of holding people accountable for ideas that don't reflect who they are anymore, this tool allows people to quickly find and review their old problematic tweets.  This is done with a custom search facility which trawls your old tweets for certain keywords associated with racist, sexist and homophobic behaviour.

In order to delete the tweets and move forward, people must share a personalised, automatically generated tweet, owning up their past thoughts, and a link promoting healthy information sources to combat prejudice.  Try the tool for yourself HERE

Established over 40 years ago, Greyhound Recycling and Recovery has been involved in waste management since the beginning. The business began with a single truck and a lot of ambition. Today, it is one of Dublin’s largest family owned and managed waste companies. They are always trying to find new and better waste management techniques and to facilitate recycling and even turn household waste into electricity.
