RE: [GreenYes] garbage/recycling alternate pickups
Anne,
One of my communities that is also very small also only uses one truck
The truck is split into 2 compartments one for garbage and one for
recycling.
We alternate one week the truck collects garbage and fiber recycling
(paper, cardboard) and the next week we collect garbage and commingled
(bottles and cans)  It works very well in the town, we only have
approximately 1000 households.
Hope this helps

Dave

apologies for crossposting

I got the following inquiry from Anne Lankenau (alankenau@no.address) in
Sitka, Alaska. Can you anyone pass on any leads to her?  She's not on
the listserve, so email to her directly.

My question is actually simple. I am trying to find out what
cities/towns/communities have a pick-up recycling program where they
alternate
between garbage and recycling pick-up. This means that garbage and
recycling are collected every other week with one week for "garbage" and

the next for recycling. We are considering such a schedule because we
have only one truck and driver to pick up each week. We have heard
that Eugene, Oregon, and Friday Harbor, Washington, use the same
schedule, but we are wondering if there are other communities doing
this as well. If you are unable to give us this information, we would
appreciate it if you could give us some ideas of where else to ask.
