[greenyes] Estimating bottles "lost" to bottle bill
Does anyone know of an incidence, or a study addressing the following:
A County (or State or Municipality for that matter) is not located in a bottle bill state, but is in close proximity to one, and desires to estimate the quanity of materials generated in the jurisdiction that are recovered in the bottle bill state.  

If a jurisdiction wants "credit" for recycling these materials that are brought to bottle bill states (as opposed to landfilling them) -- how would they go about this?

Similarly, are there any jurisdictions out there that are crediting backyard composting tons as "recycled" ? If so, how is this estimation being made? I'd assume a certain number of pounds per each houshold that has a bin?  

Any feedback on these issues would be greatly appreciated!
