TommyWonk to Speak at RPAC Meeting

Just because I have been quiet recently, it doesn't mean I have been idle. I have been working hard to keep up with my various committees, task forces and work groups.

Next up for me is the Recycling Public Advisory Committee (RPAC) meeting tomorrow. I have been invited to make a presentation on the economics of recycling. (You can go to some old posts for more on the economics of landfill diversion and single stream collection and processing.)

RPAC meets tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 15, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., at the Brandywine Hundred Public Library, 1300 Foulk Road, Wilmington.

Good luck. I'm sure you'll do fine...

I'm curious. Could you find for me whether more human man hours are required because of sorting out recyclables, than just dumping and covering up?

I've always thought recycling was better for the job market too...

Actually one of the advantages of modern single stream recycling is that it is not as labor intensive as the old system of sorting and separate handling. There will be jobs created, but we shouldn't think of recycling as a make-work program.
