[GreenYes] PAYT Questions

The city of Sun Valley is implementing a brand-new PAYT program, and
there are a few questions they have in doing this.

* Currently there looking at three different sized containers:
32, 68, and 95. They're looking at a price range of approximately
$16-$26 for this range of bin sizes. Does this price differential
provide enough financial incentive for people to reduce the amount of
waste that they generate and maximize recycling?

* They are also looking at a supplemental bag system and are
trying to decide between using colored bags or separate tagsat a cost of
six dollars per. Do most pay as you throw systems use bags or tags
these days?

Thanks for any advice you can throw my way.
