[GreenYes] Re: [Greenyes Digest] V3 #70
Aye!
Apparently, Jax, FL had similar problems when the City first started
recycling collection points, prior to the curbside program.  They turned
into a horrible mess and were discontinued following an uproar from Fire
Departments and other locations that had to deal with the mess that
outside, unmanned collection bins created. 
In contrast, a potential benefit of recycling (white paper) within
libraries, as was pointed out to me by Kathryn Smith, is controlling for
contamination by having the collection inside.  However, as the library
has told me, finding space for this is a yet another challenge.  
As I get deeper into the logistics of this idea, it seems that it may
be too problematic for big city libraries.  Perhaps it might be more
appropriate in a small-town setting?  
Other recommendations that I have received include:
1. other locations, such as public schools (allowing students and
parents to bring white paper from home to contribute to the school's
program), or the post office (apparently, some post offices already have
bins for junkmail)
2. caution about sensitive documents - shredding recommended (Allen
Rathe, Eastern Illinois U.)

I appreciate everyone's suggestions, and I will post any progress we
make in Jax.  If anyone else tries it elsewhere, I'd appreciate a
report!

Andrew:
[GreenYes] public library as a collection point for public office paper
recycling
In our highly educated community of Chapel Hill NC, we can't even
sustain a simple bin for recycling aluminum cans right outside the front
door of the lib & next to the trash can, i'ts constantly trashed, we
removed it.

Steve, this is a little different: The Town of Hillsborough recently
bid their comm. waste collection out & our Solid Waste Management Dept
for the County bid on it. We will also bid on the University's comm.
waste collection later this fall.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my question about cities who have

certain recycling routes. =20

Here's the list of cities folks have shared with me thus far:

Charlotte, NC
Phoenix, AZ
Mesa, AZ
Indianapolis, IN
Columbia, MO
Cincinnati, OH
Richmond, VA
Chesapeake, VA
Sacramento County, CA


Thanks for all of your help.

multifamily programs

Apologies for any cross-posting.

I'm doing some research into source reduction and recycling at
multifamily dwellings and have been looking for a copy of the article
cited below.  Interlibrary Loan proved fruitless.  Has anyone any
information that would be of help?

Thanks very much.

You may wish to contact the Institute of Government at UNC Chapel Hill,
they have quite a library of gov't publications that go back a long
way.
