We measured set out rates and overall participation and found the average 
participation over the year was 85% while the average set out was two to three 
weeks apart.  We realized that we had asked the participants in our media to put 
out full bins.  They generated the discards at different rates due to 
demographic variables, e.g., size of family, purchasing patterns.
