This guide, designed for both students and adults, is intended for individuals who feel they might be interested in establishing a recycling depot. The guide includes such pertinent information as deciding how to set up a depot, markets and transportation, preparation of materials, where to place the depot and when to operate it, publicity and education, types of containers and special equipment needed, how to get extra help, legal requirements and recycling, the keys to recycling, and how to go about closing down a recycling depot. Also included in this guide is a Recycling Handbook. Each page of this handbook describes one type of recyclable material such as glass, "tin cans," aluminum, newspapers, magazines, cardboard and ledger paper, motor oil, car bodies, and plastics. After a description of each item, the industrial processes used to recycle it and the importance of recycling the item are clarified. A presentation of the politics of recycling concludes this handbook. (BT)
