RE: [greenyes] Environmental Committees
Don't overlook the fact that many jurisdictions are starting to collect food
scraps from food-handling businesses (grocery stores, restaurants, institutions)
for off-site composting.  One more bin or cart...

Dear list,

I am looking for some guidelines that can be used to "size" garbage/recycling

The guidelines would basically be a matrix of expected volumes of trash and
recycling, recycling to include mixed paper and bottles and cans from a variety
of different kinds of businesses.

The businesses would for instance include:

Large Retail Grocery (by square foot of retail space)
Large Retail Consumer Goods (by square foot of retail space)
Restaurants (by max seating)
Office Buildings (by occupied square feet)
Schools (by number of students)
Multifamily (by number of units)

This would be a tool for cities to use as a guideline for requiring proper sized
enclosures for garbage and recycling needs.

I will look at the CIWMB site for info, but I thought that additional info for
comparison would be interesting and helpful.

Thank you all in advance,

Kim Springer
