Re: [greenyes] successful recycling in high buildings?

See the case study done in 2000 for the CIWMB on Recycling in Multi Family Dwellings at

I was looking for information on successful experiences on source
separation of wastes and recycling in several story buildings/high
buildings.  How do people separate their garbage within the building?
Are there separate containers in each floor?  Cities in developing
countries are usually pretty crowded and full of several floor buildings
and that makes it harder for source separation.

Also, could someone provide me with creative ways for people to
separate their garbage in small apartments with small kitchens?  Are
there special garbage containers with several divisions or something of
the sort?  Here again, apartments are small and people complain they
don't have much space in thir kitchens to keep several containers or
even to keep wastes for a week inside their homes.  Any ideas or
suceesful experiences?

Thanks so much in advance!
