[greenyes] Rural Recycling Models
Dear All,
  We're looking for information, case studies, contacts, and other 
resources/suggestions on successful rural recycling programs, especially ones 
serving small populations (under 5,000) in large geographic areas (over 500 
square miles).  
  Of particular interest are approaches addressing the needs of residents and 
businesses in a group of small communities intermingled with wilderness 
areas, national & state parks, campgrounds, Native American reservations, 
tourist resorts, and so on, where there are both permanent and visitor 
populations.  
  In addition to programs serving all of these kinds of stakeholders, we are 
looking for programs serving any one type, such as a single rural community, 
national park, reservation, etc.  Also of particular interest are any rural 
program examples located in mountain/desert environments.
  Ideas are also welcome on integrated rural approaches for both discard 
(solid waste) management and recycling (including composting, reuse, 
recycling economic development, and the other R's).  
  Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.  This research is to 
support development of recycling options for a cluster of communities in a 
remote area of San Diego's "back-country" near the famous Palomar Mountain 
observatory.
  
Many thanks,
