[GreenYes] Re: Single stream without glass

Cedar Rapids, Iowa, also operates a single stream program with glass
collected separately. The City had trucks designed (Labrie) that have
separate compartments for clear and colored glass. The recycling
processor, City Carton Recycling, has a very low residue rate,
typically under 1.5%. The program works very efficiently and
effectively. Residents place glass in their own separate container
next to their recycling bin/cart. Being a bottle bill state, Iowa does
not have all the liquor, beer, and wine bottles in their curbside
program because they are redeemed for the deposit at grocery stores and
other redemption centers. The contact in Cedar Rapids is Mark Jones,
Dir. of Solid Waste & Recycling, m.jones@no.address

Rick Meyers
City of Milwaukee Recycling Manager
