Are you exploring the idea of switching to carts? Or looking to elevate a program with “strong bones”? If you operate a local government recycling program, this guide was written for you. It draws from real world experiences and covers what you really need to know to help you plan and budget your transition to curbside recycling in carts. It’s chock-full of reminders to help you be successful, and it points out potential pitfalls and how to avoid them. You’ll find concrete examples and rules of thumb to take much of the guesswork out of switching to carts, along with timelines to keep you on track.
This guide is modular. Each section stands on its own. For example, if you have a firm grasp on everything except for cart procurement, you can simply use the section on carts.
