Re: [greenyes] Commercial Recycling Ordinance
Rose,

Hawthorne, CA just adopted a new Commercial Recycling Ordinance that we drafted for them. For a copy, go to: http://www.cityofhawthorne.com/psrv_hawrcy-ord1770.pdf

For an overview of different Business Recycling policies adopted around CA, check out the case study we did for the CIWMB in 2000 entitled "Business Recycling Policies and Plans" at: http://www.ciwmb.ca.gov/LGLibrary/Innovations/

If you'd like to discuss the details of these, email or call me.

The city of Visalia ( California ) is implementing a fee for commercial recycling, a free service since 1995. The recycling fees are less than the garbage fees. Not surprisingly, I am encountering a fair amount of resistance as I contact the 500 accounts. However, I am finding that many establishments did not reduce their garbage service levels after I placed the recycling bin. So, in many instances I am able to demonstrate an overall cost savings.

However, at some locations the resistance is massive. The city council is open to the possibility of passing a commercial recycling ordinance. Do you know of any cities that have these, and could you refer me to a copy of the ordinance?

Thanks in advance for your time and shared knowledge.

Take care,

Rose
