Single stream recycling

Single stream requires one desk side bin for all recyclables. No more blue bins. No more separate pickup for mixed paper. Glass, metal, plastics, and paper all go in the same bin.It is expected that single stream recycling will increase recycling, changing the waste stream to 80 percent recycled and 20 percent trash. This type of recycling will save the government millions of dollars in waste disposal costs while also generating money through the proceeds of Recycled items
