Most people aren't aware that recycling rules vary between waste management companies. So, I don't think a resource for finding their websites would be well-used. Getting this sort of information isn't worth it if I'm the only one who wants it. However, if you know what you want to recycle and just need to find where, this is a good resource: earth911.com

Musings on Recycling
If we're going to survive as a species and leave a place for our great^10 grandchildren, we have to think about using resources in a sustainable way. Or, there will be no resources left for those people. That's why I'm a proponent of recycling.
On the other hand, the tumultuous job scene in Silicon Valley has me moving fairly often. Unfortunately, every time I move, the rules for recycling change. And, it can be difficult to look up these rules onlline. Some areas have multiple waste management companies. Some company websites bury recycling rules behind community outreach info and games.
I'd like it if there was one resource to go to that could tell me who would possibly be serving my zip code and how I can contact them.
I've heard this information can change often, but I think it's worthwhile to try to collect and curate.Sunday, May 23, 2010
