RE: [greenyes] State recycling rates



All....

Others may disagree with me, but in my opinion comparing state recycling
rates is an "apples and oranges" comparison at best. I doubt that there are
2 states that measure exactly the same items. Furthermore, some states may
include materials imported from other states and recycled in their state,
thus inflating their recycling rate. I would discourage this sort of
comparison unless you know that the methods of measurement are identical.

Anyone know where I could find a list of the states and their respective
recycling rates?

Thanks in advance.
