[GreenYes] Re: Single stream without glass

We moved to a single stream no glass system 3-4 years ago here in Santa Fe.
However, we continue to collect glass at the curb as a second bin. Some call
this modified single stream. This practice is fairly rare, but I think Metro
in Portland operates this way as well. Unless you are automated at the curb,
we have found the only real additional cost is the second bin.
This was originally a true single stream system...and we were, and remain,
convinced that if we completely dropped glass entirely we would find
customers hiding glass under the single stream leaving us with the
contamination problem we were trying to avoid in the first place!
Feel free to contact me for more info.

Subject: [GreenYes] Single stream without glass

The Las Vegas metro area is considering going to single stream and
dropping glass collection. Omaha recently did this, and they are
looking for other communities. If you have single stream collection
and have eliminated glass from that collection, they would like you to
contact them--
