Comments – My goal of 500 MT (500,000 kg) for 2016 has officially been laid to rest. I crunched the numbers to see what is happening.
The good news is that co-mingled weights are up by almost 6 MT. This means more households are recycling more. Office paper is also up by 2 MT.
Corrugated cardboard and newspaper are the two categories where we have seen the biggest reduction. Cardboard is down 9 MT and news is down almost 3.
