[greenyes] Re: greenyes DigestStreet sigsns
Debby: here in Chapel Hill and Orange County NC we don't yet have recycling center designations at  EXIT SIGNS, but for about 14 years have used street sign blades atop the existing street sign poles to indicate the direction to a recycling center from the nearest intersection. These are placed atop streetsigns either as a retrofit or if the signs are new. The biggest ongoing problem is that when the street signs are replaced due to accident, upgrade, theft etc, it is not part of the local government protocol to replace the recycling part so the lowly recycling division of the solid waste dept. must get that done retroactively.

  Has anyone developed or seen a road sign to indicate that a transfer 
station/recycling center is at this exit? It would be a "guide sign", 
similar to the airplane sign for airports, and gas pump sign for fuel 
station, that are placed adjacent to exit signs off highways. Please send 
image or link to image directly to me.
  I've looked at the following resources to no avail.
1. Manual of traffic signs in the US 
2. AA Roads, 
4. California DOT, 
5. California DMV,
