[GreenYes] Re: data on public recycling bins


Title: [GreenYes] Re: data on public recycling bins

See the report on NYC's Public Space Recycling pilot at
http://www.nyc.gov/html/nycwasteless/html/recycling/public_space_recycling.shtml

NYC's Waste Characterization Study included an analysis of what is in
our street baskets. You may find this enlightening, as well. See
especially the NYC WCS Results Highlights chapter on Street Basket
Waste, pages 47-52 at:
http://www.nyc.gov/html/nycwasteless/downloads/pdf/wastecharreports/wcsfinal/highlights/results_highlights_nyc_wcs.pdf

Hope you find this information helpful.
