what works – and doesn’t work
The webinar was moderated by Susan Robinson, Federal Public Affairs Director of Waste Management. Presenters -- Michelle Metzler is Waste Management’s Public Outreach Manager in the Pacific Northwest, Bob Cappadona is Vice President at Casella Recycling and Scott Mouw is the Senior Director of Technical Assistance at The Recycling Partnership.
Unit-based pricing, also known as pay-as-you-throw, offers the most effective means to reduce waste and increase recycling–even in cities and towns that have taken other steps to cut their trash, such as single-stream recycling, automated carts, collection of additional materials, and education and outreach.
