• K-12 : Confirm first LEED certified school in state
• Programs for Municipalities and Counties: “At least provide an opportunity to recycle” - is this clearly defined somewhere in statute? Providing for drop off or picking up recyclables focuses only on the collection.
• PAYT: Some municipalities charge less per unit volume for recyclables than for MSW…is this considered PAYT and does it provide the same incentive?
• Programs for technical assistance: What role does/can RFT play in providing training and or managing Recycling Business Assistance Center? Would they be an appropriate partner and could they help reduce costs?
• Product Stewardship: What about incentives/tax breaks for using post consumer recycled materials from other manufactures products in manufacturing new goods…{no incentive for stewardship of your own products brought back.}
• Source reduction is obviously preferable to recycling ...how will the accounting process take this in to account without penalizing communities success in this area?
