[GreenYes] Journal of Solid Waste Technology Management recycle of MSW starts here

Journal of Solid Waste Technology and Management 1996, 23(4), 219-225 (Eng.)
The author addresses the issue of improving the economics of recycling from
the curb to a materials recovery facility (MRF). The shortcomings of
recycling technology are examined and suggestions are made to reduce recyclable
materials collection costs. They include: adoption of the "wet/dry" system to
separate organic garbage and inorganic recyclables; design and standardization of
an automated collection vehicle that can separate light and heavy recyclable
materials; a single discharge point for the automated collection vehicle to
the MRF; and conveyor systems to route loads deposited into different process
trains. The article also discusses the design aspects of mechanical
integration of the MRF with the automated collection vehicles.
Public Perception of Strategies for Increasing Participation in Recycling
Nyamwange M.
The Journal of Environmental Education 1996, 27(4), 19-22 (Eng.)
The question of how to increase public participation in recycling programs
to reduce economic and environmental costs of municipal solid waste is
addressed. A random survey conducted in Jersey City, New Jersey, asked households
what would induce full participation of the residents in the community.
Questions included: reasons for not recycling, channels of awareness for recycling
programs, potential sites for recycling containers, and changes that may
increase recycling participation. The survey indicated that public information
campaigns emphasizing the advantages of recycling ranked first among the top
four changes needed to stimulate participation.
