It would seem that single stream advocates focus on how much is
“collected” and not how much is recycled.

Re: resources saved calculator for single-stream
Do the NERC and WARM models
have this? I can’t remember. The folks to contact, otherwise, are Recycle Bank.
Go to their website first: www.recyclebank.com

or are there any calculators specific to single-stream? All
links or anecdotes are
