Re: [greenyes] Re: 2-Stream Recycling?: Recycled Paper & Commingled Containers






Eureka's study is also described in an article on page 22 of the March
2004 issue of "BioCycle."

MessageYes to Harvey's question below.

Eureka Recycling conducted a controlled test in St. Paul of a single
stream large cart vs. two stream wheeled carts, and they found that the
observed effect in increased participation was due to the cart, not
single stream simplicity.

None of the claims I've seen to the contrary claiming that single
stream, apart from carts, is responsible for higher participation rates
have been in controlled tests which is needed to separate the simplicity
hypothesis from the cart hypothesis.

You can read the study yourself to draw your own conclusions on Eureka's
web page.

Has anyone seen a residential system where residents are given a 60
gallon cart for mixed paper and continue to use the 18 gallon bin for
commingle containers? They are starting to use this approach in
Montgomery County, MD and getting great diversion increases from going
away from just the 18 gallon bin.

Harvey
