Recycling Programs Hurt by Recession
"Demand for commodities such as cardboard, paper and glass has taken a nose dive, and prices for those materials have gone south since last fall."
"In August, a recycler in Georgia could expect to receive about $160 a ton for curbside recyclables. Now the average is about $37 a ton."
"In one of the birthplaces of municipal curbside recycling, Berkeley, California, recyclables yielded about $200 per ton last fall. Now it hovers around $35 per ton."
