RE: [greenyes] who was the first multi-material curbside program?


I did public outreach for the first L.A. curbside program, in 1984. We
had Mayor Bradley carry a curbside bin down a residential street,
following a jazzy high school band.

The Berkely Ecology Center began its curbside program in 1972.

Eco-Cycle was collecting curbside paper and containers in 1976, almost
30 years ago. We claim to be "one of the first 20"... don't know where
Grogan came up with that one. I have heard that the first
multi-material collection program was in California sometime around
1970? I think Gary Liss told me that... hey, Gary, you know the history
on this?

Note under the US coverage that 20 years ago only one roadside
[curbside]recycling program existed...whose was that...Ecocycle's?
Recycle Ann Arbor's The Recyclers [of Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton
Counties]?, etc. etc........

There's an interesting article on recycling in the UK, the EU and
selected other countries around the world on the BBC web page today at
