This analysis was undertaken in 1993-94 to examine a sample of drop-off recycling programs in the United States and Canada to determine the quantities of recyclable materials diverted, the cost of diverting those materials, and the impact of a wide range of independent variables on diversion and costs. Case studies were developed for eighteen drop-off systems in twelve programs that included multiple sites, central sites, buy-back facilities, block corner, and combination systems. Case study programs were selected to include rural, urban, and suburban communities. Case study data is either calendar or fiscal year 1993, as available. The independent variables included site characteristics, drop-off technology, degree of seperation, presence of competing recycling programs, population and number of households served, size of the geographic area served, requirements of state legislation, median income, education levels, and population density.
