We're working with the City of Omaha to address the issue that you asked
about below. If you're planning to attend the NRC, check out the
contracting session on Tuesday to learn more about Omaha's (and several
other organization's) efforts to "incentivize" diversion with more strategic
contracting approaches. If you're not going to the NRC, give me a call or
email for additional info/contacts (note different email address below).
Talk to you soon.

Subject: Incentives in Recyclables Collection Contracts
Is anyone aware of communitities that have made use of positive
incentives in recyclables collection contracts in order to motivate
1) Maximize tons of recyclables collected
2) Provide excellent collection service (i.e. low number of missed
pick ups, good follow up on pick ups that are missed, bins placed
back so they don't obstruct sidewalks, rejection stickers used
properly and consistently, etc., etc.).
Thanks for your help.
