[GreenYes] impact of collection program changes
As many of you know, New York City is considering suspending the collection
of metal, glass, and plastic recyclables for an 18 month period.

Does anyone have any data they can share on whether eliminating the
collection of certain materials had a corresponding impact on diversion
rates of other materials?  We're wondering if we'll see paper diversion
rates decline as a result of less public focus/interest on recycling as an
important activity.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
