Why Not Single Stream Recycling?

Single Stream recycling is the process of putting all acceptable recyclable items together in one large cart for collection and sortation at a Single Stream recycling facility. Many larger population areas around the country have gone to Single Stream collection for recycling. The Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority (CCRRA) recently contracted with a consulting company who conducted a yearlong study and determined that Single Stream collection is not the right option for our program.  The full report can be found here.
