RE: [greenyes] Re: New York City recommits to recycling!


The City of Long Beach has provided curbside recycling to all
single-family homes and multi-family buildings of 10 or fewer units since
1992. Over the past year, we have been expanding our program to include
ALL residential and ALL City-services commercial accounts. When the
expansion is completed (est. end of 2004), every City-serviced account
will have curbside recycling service.

BTW, the City of LB has its own municipal refuse collection. Under
defined circumstances, commercial accounts (which includes some
multi-family) can opt out of the City service and instead contract with
permitted private haulers. That's why the qualifier "City-serviced" is in
the previous paragraph.

Is that true...NY is the ONLY city to provide full curbside to all
households? I know many cities do...maybe they mean even multi-family?

Thought you all might like to see this view about recycling in New York
City
from the UK:

According to the article "High Diversion -- is it Achievable?", found in
the
July-August 2004 issue of Waste Management World (the journal of the
International Solid Waste Association), "New York is the only US city to
provide a full kerbside recycling service to all its households... It
thus
provides an important benchmark against which to assess the recycling
performance of other large metropolitan conurbations."
