[GreenYes] Correlation between solid waste generation and recyclingtonnage
Our County is developing a test model for charging availability fees to commercial and other non-residential properties for recycling services that either are currently available or will become available.  Our premise for creating varying levels of potential fees is that waste geneation intensities, such as those created from the Palm Beach Co. Florida study of weight of garbage/business type would correlate well with the recycling potential from those businesses. 

It seems that if something is now a 'waste' in a business e.g. restaurant glass or food waste, or office building paper, it could just as easily be a recyclable. Is there any disconnection between waste generation rates and potential recycling rates that anyone is aware or?  Thanks. Blair Pollock
