We dropped newspaper/magazine recycling long ago. Lower collection volumes, lower recycle payouts.
We have thought of sponsoring an "electronics" collection but other groups jumped in. Word is they barely broken even. Some roadside dumping occurred too, as some did not want to pay to drop off their 30yr old cathode-tube TV., etc
We still do bottle and can recycling but revenue has been down. Some blame the economy as folks do their own returns.
Recycling revenue is shrinking while the troop activities expenses are growing.
Anyway this recent article lead to this topic.
Oops that overused word sustainable...I'm a little teapot. Short and stout...
