Zero Waste's Two cart pilot program - thoughts?
Original post made by Michele on Jan 28, 2013
There is a meeting on Feb. 7 to discuss it but I have another commitment which I may try to change.
What do people think about this? Is it working in other parts of PA? Is it more Nazi Alto at work? Thoughts?

"From what I can see this is condensing the current three carts into two. More sorting for us."
Sounds like LESS sorting. Instead of using 3, there's 2. How is that more sorting?
What am I missing here?

After looking at their website, it seems that the black cart will go away. What used to be in it (garbage) will be sorted by the homeowner. Food scraps and food soiled paper will go in a bag in the blue cart, I think it was, and non recyclable items will go in a bag in the green cart.
I'm not necessarily opposed to more sorting, just want to be sure there is an option for the stuff I do have to get rid of.

Here's a thread from a couple of weeks ago with many thoughts. You can peruse them at your leisure, but there are many things you may not have considered. From my recollection, there were more comments against the idea than for it. Web Link
