Re: RecycleBank Article


Eric-

I¹d be happy to talk if you¹d like to call me sometime. There are many, many
pros and a few cons. The main questions you have to ask yourself is whether
you want 90-100% participation every week, is your participation high enough
already, & if not, can you re-route trash trucks efficiently to handle the
excess load. On the goodwill side of the equation though, there couldn¹t be
a better idea out there.
