[GreenYes] cost comparison of collecting commingled v. source sepreccyclables
I am in search of any documented data  comparing the costs of collecting source sep as we do now with a six way sort at the curb 
with cost of collecting a single stream or even dual e.g. , paper/containers or glass/not glass , etc.
We collect weekly from 15,500 housheolds and biweekly from another 9,000. slightly smaller scale than san diego. 

A sound documentation would show both the collection cost comparison and the cost when the MRF or other processing as well as residual rates and collector injury rates were added in. 

Thank you for taking time to respond. replying directly or to the list is fine. I am very glad the list is back up. hello to all readers/writes. the forum remains lively.
