The NPC Kerbside study

A groundbreaking study which attempted to assess the value of household recycling

Intended to show which materials / locations were suited to recycling

The idea was to reduce cost to councils / community by limiting recycling to materials / locations where recycling was most viable

Result: Cost of $26 pa and environmental benefit of $68 pa – net benefit of $42 pa per household

Non-viable for regional areas if distance to market exceeds 1300km (on average) or if less than 400 – 500 houses serviced per day
