Solid Waste Services: Toward a greener future
"When the international recycling market collapsed last year, wholesale prices dropped below processing costs, so Austin now owes Greenstar roughly $2.3 million in fees. However, Leffingwell argued that the overall program still succeeded by increasing recycling by 50%, and, he said, 'We didn't lose money overall because we saved so much money by shifting to single-stream.' (The savings came primarily from reduced transport costs from running fewer collection trucks.)"

"Come for a night of educational presentations, informative discussions and drinks on ATC at the first Tech Rave! It’s not just a happy hour and it’s not just a boring seminar. With six rapid fire 15-minute presentation there will be no time for Q & A immediately following the presentation.
