Multi-Residential Front-End Bin Gravity Lock Study

Projects Description

A pilot study designed to quantify the extent to which using gravity locks minimizes contamination rates and lowers recycling service costs for Multi-residential buildings using Front End Loading (FEL) bins.  A cost benefit analysis will be completed.  If the gravity locks prove to be a practice that helps to minimize contamination, a better practice guide will be developed.
