RE: [greenyes] Separate bins for curbside collection of paper
I believe most of Rhode Island collects mixed paper and commingled in two
separate bins.  www.rirrc.org

As a resident this is my preference.  Then I don't hae to get paper bags at
the store and catalogs/magazines can be difficult to bag anyway as the bags
rip.

The best program would be one that gives residents the option to use bins,
clear bags, or paper bags...Although I understand the reason to accept one
way or the other and esepcailly not to use plastic bags for obvious reasons.

Hi-
I was wondering if anyone had experiences with collecting paper products in
a
separate bin (not with containers) curbside.

* Do the bins become too heavy for the collectors to pick up?
* Has a separate bin increased paper recycling in your community?
* Have residents expressed space constraints in their home/yard with regards
to
having to store an extra bin?

Any information you may have would be helpful.

Thank you-
