Recycling Cart Pilot Study

In 2008, the City of Vancouver and Clark County partnered with Waste Connections to conduct a pilot program to test using carts (all commingled materials in one cart except for glass, which goes on the side) prior to replacing the 3-bin recycling system. Reports from that Recycling Pilot Project are available by clicking on the link below - information posted on the Clark County Solid Waste web site. (Please note that the Recycling Pilot Program Final Report is an extremely large file, and could be difficult to access for slower connections.)
