Re: [GreenYes] Re: Single Stream Processing - Pro and Con
Roger and Helen,

That's happening all over California.  Dropoffs, buybacks and curbside are 
all serving different constituencies, and working well together to maximize 
waste diversion.  Single-stream curbside systems provide the maximum 
convenience and increase diversion amounts.  Buybacks provide the maximum 
value.  Dropoffs are usually run by nonprofits that attract donations for 
their cause, or provide service for difficult to recycle 
materials.  Residents get to choose what's most important to them: 
convenience, price or a cause.
