The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services, DES, announced today that the town of Lyme has achieved "remarkable" results in its first full year of a "pay-as-you-throw" solid waste disposal program.
Lyme's recycling rate increased from 13.4 percent in 2005 to 51.9 percent in 2006. The town disposed of 310 tons of waste in 2006 - 264 tons less than in 2005. The town recycled 334 tons, up from 89 tons in 2005.
Pay-as-you-throw programs have proven to increase recycling in many communities. Families have a financial incentive to recycle and create less trash when they are charged for each bag of garbage that they throw out, DES officials said. http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_kmens/is_200703/ai_n18746287
