RE: [greenyes] cost for hauling commercial recyclables


Since when was recycling free? It may be perceived as free, because the
charge is buried in the cost of garbage, but it certainly isn't free.

I'm curious about the cost for businesses to recycle in other jurisdictions.
Recycling is usually free to residents but I guess that is not always the
case for businesses.

Two of the cities in the county do their own hauling and provide businesses
with unlimited free recycling of mixed paper and containers. Other county
jurisdictions (all of which contract with Waste Management for business
hauling) allow two 64-gallon carts of free recycling pickup and businesses
need to pay if they want more.

I'd be interested in hearing about other cities and counties, especially in
California.
