Recycling and PAYT garbage systems?
Does anyone here have any experience with newly implemented Pay-as-you-throw garbage systems? Especially with setting one up in a community? My state does not to my knowledge have these programs in a single community. Recycling centers are also extremely rare and difficult to come by. I was just looking and the nearest recycling center for regular recyclables (paper, plastic, etc) is over an hour away and I could only use their drop off that's only available two days a week plus one additional weekend day each month. Very difficult to use! I saw a lot of resources on the EPA's website with toolkits and such for a community to use as resources to set this up but since I'm the only person aware of it to my knowledge I'd like to know how/who to approach to get them to consider this type of program and also get more recycling going. Just kind of at a loss and wish there was a way to get some change around here.
