Residential recycling study

Richard Adams, University of Texas at El Paso


The purpose of this study is to gain baseline performance figures and statistics for El Paso's curbside recycling program. With these baseline statistics the effectiveness of changes for promotion and outreach can be evaluated once implemented. In addition, operational changes such as to every other week recycling collection rather then every week or a “pay as you throw” system could be evaluated.
