Abstract The report presents the results of a national telephone survey of 205 separate collection programs, defined as a scheduled collection of separated recyclable materials from residences and/or commercial establishments. It details national and regional trends in separate collection program growth. It describes trends in separate collection program design markets for recovered materials, publicity, collection practices, and ordinances and determines which aspects of separate collection program design encourage high resident participation and high solid waste diversion rates. It informs municipalities interested in starting a separate collection program how communities are presently operating programs and reviews practices used by communities to sell recyclable materials.
