Re: [greenyes] Encouraging Reuse while addressing safety & liability related to scavenging

Along these lines, consider developing a Resource Recovery Park that incorporates a reuse drop-off program as described by Pavitra. See for a case study I wrote in 2000 regarding this concept.

How about setting up a reuse program right at the disposal site(s)? This
creates an oppotunity for all manner of reusables to find their way to the
local community. In Sonoma County we have had such a program since 1985
and it has been so successful the county has now created a huge facility
just for reuse.
That way people can drop reusables off, and if the company that operates
the reuse facility is non-profit they can get a tax dediction for their
donation, there are no liability or safety concerns. It does take up space
but usually there is space at disposal sites in the buffer zones.
