The report's executive summary reads, "After collection and processing, we estimated that there was a net increase of all materials recovered in curbside recycling of between 1-3 percent.
The report analysis shows that if single-stream methods were implemented universally across all curbside collection, assuming the quality differences per the 2002 R.
Because of staffing concerns and the facility's two full miles of access, LAX is the last airport in the nation to reopen its curbsides to private traffic, airport spokeswoman Nancy Castles said.
The need for additional security personnel was one of the main reasons for the delay in reinstituting curbside drop-offs, Castles said.
Baled plastic collected at curbsides is piling up in warehouses, scrap yards and, yes, even landfills, because markets haven't kept pace with exploding municipal collection programs.
Recyclers themselves are said to be "downblending" curbside material with off-spec virgin or industrial scrap to offer a more cost-competitive product.
The GTC would have eight separate 1400-foot-long curbsides
connecting arrival and departing passengers to two separate and redundant people mover train stations.
If approved by the City Council in the coming weeks, the program would put a second recycling container on residential curbsides for green waste and prohibit nonresidential sites from disposing of organic greens in trash containers bound for the landfill.
From weekly lawn clippings to more seasonal Christmas tree trimmings, the city's green waste could become the newest entry in Westlake Village's curbside recycling program.
At many non-GTMS airports, taxis create serious congestion on roadways and especially at terminal curbsides throughout the day, regardless of demand.
GTMS offers airport operators multiple benefits: increased revenues, by charging commercial vehicles for access on a "per use" basis versus the "honor" system; improved control of commercial vehicle movement; more information on vehicle operator and company activity levels and passenger preferences; increased vehicle operator compliance with airport rules and regulations; better customer service to the traveling public; more efficient use of curbside space; reduced vehicle emissions; and more.
