Seattle Public Utilities is currently researching bans. We are trying to find two types of information:
1. Contacts, reports, references that show the effects on disposed tons or recycled tons of bans on materials. It doesn't matter what type of ban (i.e. at landfill, in customer can, recycling requirement, etc). We are also interested in both residential and commercial sectors. We are interested in bans on recyclables like cardboard, paper, etc. We don't need references for organics (yard or food) bans.
2. Effects on customer service call centers for the year after such a requirement or ban was put in place.
Thanks for any suggestions you have to offer.
