Subject:	[GreenYes] Multi-family legislation

Greetings.  I am a graduate student at University of Massachusetts at
Amherst's Master's of Public Administration program.  I have many interests
in the solid waste and recycling field.  I was previously a Solid Waste
Coordinator for a small town in Western Massachusetts. At this time, I am in
the Massachusetts Policy Fellowship Program through my MPA program.  As part
of this program, I am working with a Massachusetts Senator conducting
research on multi-family recycling.  

This fall semester I will be collecting information on the issue, and then
in the spring compiling the information into a policy analysis.  As of
today, the only information I have is how to implement a multi-family
recycling program. I am using this list serve to seek out leads and
information.  If anyone can point me in the right direction, through
reports, articles, contacts, websites, etc. that would be wonderful.  

Here is more of an idea of the type of information I am looking for.  Fall
Semester I am concern with the following:

1.      Determine states that actually have or are considering state
legislation mandating multi-family recycling.  I have not exhausted my
online and periodical search but I'm not finding states making legislation
forcing multi families to recycle.  I am seeing that states are leaving it
up to local or county government.  

2.      Compare those states financially - based on per capita environmental
budgets. 

Thank you for any assistance you may give. For leads and/or more information
about my research, please contact me via email ( jessicaraj@yahoo.com
