    Countywide recycling program

    Has anyone had experience with establishing a county-wide recycling program?
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Yes.

    I am a Director of the company at the end of this link, by dent of my employment. We provide a kerbside recycling service to three local government areas which I'm thinking might be akin to a US County (pop. >300,000).

    The statutory framework, communities and markets would all be different of course but if you have questions I will have a crack at answering them.

    Thanks Rem-the county does trash pick up, so it's a matter of the start up costs and finding the people to buy the materials. There will be selling/educating the public about the program and getting to buy into it. Thanks.
