[greenyes] Fw: Clarification - Reference to Guelph Ont. in a recent post
Thainking more about it I suppose you could say Guelph has a three and 1/2 stream system
as leaf & yard waste is also collected during the growing season

Mr. Richard Gertman
Environmental Planning Consultants;
Re Portola Valley

In your discussion regarding the Portola Valley program you mention Guelph Ontario.
For you information Guelph recently moved to a three sort system.
Recycables 
    Foodscraps
        Residual
The minimum required for any viable waste management system.
And no big deal for residents
No one purchases a T.V., banana and soda pop together.
They are purchased separately. 
Consumed separately.
And need only be discarded into separate containers.
Simply via redirection of motion.
Unfortunately in the past we allowed everything to be stuffed into a garbage bag 
Hauled to the curb
and forgotten
We see now this makes no sense
Or in todays parlance
is unsustainable.
