Making recycling pay

The city of Greensboro, NC is utilizing a mobile application (app) in its curbside recycling program in order to reduce contamination. The app uses global positioning system (GPS) technology to collect information in the field, enabling refuse truck operators and recycling program managers to track repeat contaminators and use additional education and enforcement to target them. Due to expected increased household recycling inspections, contamination is expected to be reduced by 50% over the next three to four years.
