[GreenYes] Requested feeback about mail-in (ship-in) recycling programs

Dear Recycling Professionals,
I am working with a client that would like to implement a mail-in recycling program. 
I am not at liberty to discuss what would be recycled, but I can say it is an item that is not hazardous in any way, and one that some curbside programs would accept, but others would not.  The program could be what I'm calling an individual or group program. Individual - consumers gather a few recyclable items, then mail in, or a group program, where schools or other organizations collect, then mail (or ship via UPS) a larger container in.
The program would be intended to "bridge the gap" where the product is not recyclable in local programs.
I would appreciate any feedback from recycling professionals regarding their experience with and/or opinion of mail-in (ship-in) recycling programs, any tips, concerns, etc.
Please feel free to email me directly -- I'd be happy to share info w/others, but I'm not sure everyone on the list is interested...
Thanks in advance!
Susan Bush
