[GreenYes] Conversion Factor for Mixed Containers...


OK folks I found a conversion number for single stream recyclables:

1 cubic yard = 250 lbs

The last thing I need is a number for mixed food and beverage containers
(ie., commingled plastic, glass, aluminum and steel). Anyone? I know that
it will vary, I just need an average.

I check EPA and CIWMB figures and this seems to be the only one that I'm
missing.

Anything that you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much,
