Abstract This report features 18 communities with record-setting residential or municipal solid waste reduction levels. The introduction explains the methodology used to identify and document record-setting waste reduction programs. The second section discusses residential waste reduction program features and characteristics common to many of the record-setters. The next section presents program features and characteristics common to institutional and commercial waste (ICW) reduction programs in those communities achieving high diversion in this sector. The 'Keys to Cost-Effectiveness' section presents methods for determining whether community waste reduction programs are cost-effective and evaluates each of the featured communities in these terms. The 'Tips for Replication' section presents tips supplied by community contacts that may help other communities achieve high waste reduction levels. Finally the sixth section includes in-depth profiles of the 18 communities and their waste reduction efforts.
