A Guide to Running a Recycling Project, Second Edition.
Oregon Recycling Information and Organizing Network, Portland.
Today's increasing awareness of shortages has prompted people to reevaluate their consumption patterns of natural resources. In a time when there is no "away" location to throw wastes, many recycling centers have been organized. This guide contains information needed to organize and operate a recycling project. Suggestions for collection sites, collectable materials, and pick-up times and services are included. One full page is devoted to a chart illustrating how to handle the different recyclables. Details for an effective publicity campaign are given, and possible legal requirements for a recycling depot are listed. Other topics include containers for recyclables, special equipment needed for the depot, volunteer help, and other helpful suggestions. (MA)
