Abstract
This report summarizes a study that assesses the technical and economic feasibility of separately collecting recyclable materials from the home. Twenty-two communities practicing separate collection were studied and detailed case studies of each system were summarized. A computer model using this data was formulated and sample cost projections using various operating parameters are presented. In addition, a study of twenty households was performed to quantify the time, cost, and storage impact on participating families. This report should be helpful to city governments interested in instituting separate collection programs for the recovery of recyclables from the waste stream.
