Working with Durham Region, the CIF is auditing litter and moisture related to open blue boxes to measure the effectiveness (cost and impact) of a recycled-tire crumb rubber blue box lid. This study will measure litter, monitor moisture in “lidded” and “unlidded” boxes, assess impact on collection timing, develop a value for litter collection costs, and survey residents for utility and feedback.
