This report summarizes a study that assesses the technical and economic feasibility of operating collection centers for the recovery of recyclable materials. Thirteen recycling centers were studied and detailed case studies of each system were summarized. Three basic types of centers were identified and analyzed: volunteer centers, commercial centers, and municipal centers. In addition, a study of twenty households was performed to quantify the time, cost, and storage impact on families which participate in recycling. This report should be helpful to city officials and volunteer groups interested in developing recycling centers.
