Muriel,

You should start with a publication written a few year ago by the Institute
for Local Self-Reliance (www.ilsr.org) which surveyed communities that were
diverting more than 50% from the landfill. The report describes what what
the common features of these all-star communities are.

Subject: [GreenYes] the "perfect" recycling program


Hello GRRNyes,
this question from a representative of NC Sierra Club who will feature
recycling issues in their next newsletter.

"do you know of any list which describes the components of the
"perfect" recycling/solid waste program? I'm asking because I wondered
what criteria a citizen might use to evaluate his/her community's
program and talk with officials about improvements."

please also reply to

Many thanks!
