Seems like no one else knows the reason for the low waste diversion rate either? That might be a problem...

We may be erroneously assuming that residents are to blame, and that bi-weekly collection will force them to "sort better".

Maybe the blame lies elsewhere?

We need to target our actions to address the cause, and it may well be that there are other changes we can implment to increase diversion 10% or 15% rather than trying to squeeze another 5% out of residential households through "better sorting".

My two cents, I really want to know more about this 50% undiverted waste, and what it is, and where it comes from.
