Re: [greenyes] Help needed for hiring of Recycling Coordinator!


A well-run campus recycling program ought to be able to document savings in
disposal collection and tip fee costs due to reductions in bin service and
landfill tip fees. Are you including these cost savings in your analysis of net
costs? Too often, administrative staff think of these programs as just "extra
campus activities" rather than key components of an overall waste management
strategy and budget. Also, it is a good way to keep monitoring the
effectiveness of the recycling program, which should be providing documented reductions
in disposal given the percentage of recyclables in the waste stream.
