Wisconsiin's Dunn County has an apartment flier that looked nice but I didn't find it on their current website.

Apologies for Cross-Postings

The USEPA Region 9 has contracted with a team of consultants to 
determine what are the best practices regarding the collection and 
processing of residential organics.

This study will identify different factors that define the programs 
and will include recommendations to advance such programs, such as 
increasing the amount of organics diverted, reducing the costs of 
collecting or processing the material, and improving the quality and 
marketing of the products. These are viewed as critical next steps to 
helping communities move towards Zero Waste.

We would like to identify All communities in EPA Region 9 (Arizona, 
California, Hawaii, Nevada, the Pacific islands and Tribal Nations) 
to interview for this study that currently, in addition to yard 
trimmings, also collect food scraps and soiled paper.  We are also 
looking to identify model communities beyond Region 9 in the U.S. or 
Canada.  If you are such a community, or if you know of such a 
community, please email <mailto:gary@garyliss.com>gary@garyliss.com 
to share that with us.

After the analysis is done (around summer of 2007), we will also 
assist one or more communities that are interested in developing or 
expanding such residential organics programs. We would also like to 
identify communities in Region 9 now that may be interested in 
getting assistance in such efforts, particularly those interested in 
exploring less than weekly collection of food scraps as 
garbage.    If you are such a community, or if you know of such a 
community, please email <mailto:gary@garyliss.com>gary@garyliss.com 
to share that with us as well.

Peter Anderson is the leader of our Project Team (RecycleWorlds and 
the Center for a Competitive Waste Industry, 
www.competitivewaste.org), assisted by Steve Sherman (Environmental 
Science Associates, www.esassoc.com) and myself (Gary Liss & 
Associates, www.garyliss.com).

Thanks for any help you can provide!
