Some items from a recent Resource Recycling eNewsletter pertaining to what some cities, states and other countries are doing in their recycling efforts.
New York City hopes to become a “zero waste” city. But to do this they have a long ways to go as a report shows their recycling rate in 2014 was only 15.4 percent.
One of the steps they are taking is implementing a Save-As-You-Throw program. It would reward those who waste less and recycle more. It is believed this effort could reduce waste generation by as much as 30 percent.
